Of course I use the rule book and case book as my primary material. I was just curious to go through the old tests too. I did forget about the test changing a few years ago though.

Thanks for the...

I believe the clock starts when the ball is legally touched, which could be on the tap of the jumper.

On the missed free throw, the clock doesn't start until it is legally touched by a player.

I followed the same logic as you did and believe this would be true. I did have to read this one a couple times though, so I am curious to see if anyone has an opinion as to why it might be false.

I had this happen a couple weeks ago. The whistle went right out of my mouth, it was embarrassing, but still funny.

I am in my first year right now, with things going well so far. But, I did this the first time a coach requested a time out too. I made the "T" signal and instantly knew what I did.

I'll give it a try here.

Situation 1: I would say A does still have the right to run the baseline. The warning for the other team shouldn't take that right away.

Situation 2: A1 can't come back...

I have a pair of the 610's and really like them. There really wasn't any "break-in" that I had to do on them either, they were good out of the box. I will probably pick up a second pair real soon too.

I have slacked off a little in the morning with the heat, but all in all still moving along. On the mornings I don't run, I do ride my bike for a while, so at least I am getting something done.
