Ejection

I was watching a high school game last night and two players were assessed flagrant fouls and ejected. They were sent to the locker room. I thought at the high school level they remained on the bench. However, in a quick review of the rule book, I cannot find the applicable rule.

Did the officials get it correct.

A player who is disqualified because he has received a flagrant foul is to remain under adult supervision at all times. That is meant to mean that he must stay on the bench under the supervision of the Head Coach; but that does not mean that a school administrator cannot remove him from the bench, escort him to the lockerroom, and then remain in the locker room with the player for the rest of the game.

This is how we handle it in Colorado as well. I thought this was a state ruling though.

More than that, the game official has the authority to insist that the offender be removed from the gym as long as he/she is properly supervised.


From NFHS Case Book 10.5:

A disqualified
team member or student bench personnel shall go to or remain on the
bench. However, in an unusual situation, an official has the authority to require
that these individuals who have committed a flagrant technical foul must leave the
vicinity of the court. This action is necessary when permitting such offenders to
remain at courtside would tend to incite the crowd, to incite the opponents, or to
subject the officials, opponents or others administering the game, to unsporting
harassment. In such circumstances, the official should require the individual who
has committed a flagrant foul to leave the vicinity of the court with an adult supervisor.
It must be emphasized that an official does have this authority, when the
circumstances resulting from any flagrant foul warrant it. (10-5 Note)
