Whose Whistle Is It Anyway?

I have a dinner bet riding on this one.

Opening tip-off, two man. R makes the toss, U is tableside (as always).

A-1 taps the ball hard and out of bounds, over the opposite sideline.

B's...

Arrow late in the quarter

Last night, my partner had an inadvertent whistle with 1.7 seconds left in the third quarter. There was no team control (during a rebound), so we had to go to the arrow, which means a team had to go...

When to Kill a Play for an Apparent Injury

A-1 goes down on an apparent non-serious injury (no head contact, etc.). Typically, if Team A is in control, I kill the play, but if Team B is in control, I prefer to hold my whistle and let it play...

Loose ball on the floor. A-1 secures the ball in his backcourt while standing up, and tries to move upcourt, but trips over B-2, lying prone in front of him. A-1 manages to get his non-pivot foot...
