True in many situations. In this situation "team control" in the FC is dependent on the player first having player control in the FC, which did not happen. Bas2456's question whether A2 had...

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.

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

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.
