Bucky, people are not necessarily interpreting the situation incorrectly. Your description doesn't make sense. Even though A1 doesn't lose contact with the ball, once A1 starts...

Technically, in the rule definition "pushes the ball to the floor" it doesn't say the ball has to bounce, that's just the way we are accustomed to seeing it. Whether the player in control of the...

Okay. Even so, by dictionary definition, "retrieve" means to regain possession. Thumpferee's opening statement said A1 retrieved the ball as his momentum was carrying him OOB. It can be argued that...

words matter

a. illegal
b. illegal
c. legal if dribble was interrupted

In a and b when you say A1 "retrieves" the ball, I have to assume he has control. Pushing or throwing the ball to the court...

Perhaps. What if the ball bounced well outside the cylinder before passing over the backboard? The try ends when it is certain the try is unsuccessful.

This was my position then and still is now. However, the conventional wisdom then, and still could be now, was K.I.S.S. The try was unsuccessful-AP throw in. That's why I thought to bring this up...

Double foul: Who gets the ball?

I brought up this question many, many years ago on another forum and still have doubts on what the correct answer is:

Who was the foul on? I can see eyes rolling, however. . .

We give lip service ad nauseam to communicate, communicate, communicate. I have no idea what the NCAA manual says about communication at the spot of the foul but I know what the NFHS manual says. ...

Jump ball: is NCAA-M rule different?

Opening tap of OSU-Villanova game on now. Tapped ball is loose and held ball is called between two non-jumpers. Jump ball re-administered apparently with the two original jumpers.

Agree. Exactly what I said in my post just before yours. I didn't mean or need to include "and shoving B4" in that other post. Should have edited that out.

What fight? If you're giving just giving T's to the players there was no fight. Yes, A7 gets ejected for coming off the bench and shoving B4 but according to your answer there was no fight.
