wrong basket

Just saw a recent video of a Belgian hs game where a player gets a defensive rebound and while all other players retreat to the other end of the court, he shoots and misses 5 or 6 times at the wrong basket. Eventually his teammates run back down and rebound the final miss. The ref was likely stunned and amazed, but he didn't start his 10 sec. count until the teammates rebounded and started back up court in the proper direction. I'd probably do the same thing, but did he get it right?

NFHS rules, this was a double dribble very early in the video.
Sprinkles are for winners.

Talked about in this thread:

"Shooting" at own basket

Should have been a violation under FIBA rules (which the game was played under) for shooting at the wrong basket. It would be a violation for shooting at the opponent's basket under NBA rules and an illegal dribble when the player touched the ball again under NCAA/NFHS rules.
Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.

Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
