Traveling VIOLATION? PLEASE ANSWER

If a player controls the ball, touches the ball on the ground and picks it back up. (Maintains possession throughout the process.) Is that a violation?

Legal Play. Right from the case book.

Nope.

Traveling, with one exception, ALWAYS involves moving the feet while holding the ball.

Anytime I see that on TV, I remember a coach telling me it was a double dribble. But that was like 35 years ago. Is anyone old enough to remember if it was ever a violation. Just curious. I've never seen it called.

I do remember it as a violation back in the day when I played HS ball. And worked with a "veteran" official last week in an adult rec game where he called this a double dribble (player had not yet dribbled and just touched the ball to the floor with two hands and then raised up). I just cringed and spoke to him later that was ok to do that. He insisted that it was a double dribble or a travel, he wasn't sure which.

Really?

I see inexperienced call this one at least one a season.

Actually had a younger partner of mine call it last week.

Just because you remember it being called doesn't necessarily mean it was ever the rule. Your veteran partner is proof of that.

Let's Go To The Videotape ...

4.15 COMMENT: It is not possible for a player to travel during a dribble. A player
is not dribbling while slapping the ball during a jump, when a pass rebounds
from his/her hand, when he/she fumbles, or when he/she bats a rebound or pass
away from other players who are attempting to get it. The player is not in control
under these conditions. It is a dribble when a player stands still and bounces the
ball. It is not a dribble when a player stands still and holds the ball and touches
it to the floor once or more than once.
