Two Players on the Floor

This happened to us twice in a BV game this past weekend. On a loose ball, both A1 and B1 arrive at the ball at the same time. Both make an attempt for the ball and collide, falling to the floor like...

8th grader on varsity

I know this isn't something us refs need to know. But, do any of you scholars know what the NFHS or Michigan HSAA association rule is on this? I think you are limited to 4 years of official varsity...

Lacrosse

I have found lacrosse to be very similar to basketball. Much of the refs role is positioning, body contact, etc. The sticks, helmets and shoulder pads add a ton of fun. Also, parents dont know the...

Ponytail out of bounds?

This came up at our last refs meeting today: GV, A1 has the ball and is on the ground. Her two foot pony tail is laying across the sideline, clearly OOB. No other body part or uniform is on/across...

Defusing is not my primary question

I feel I can defuse quite well and that's why I have given one whole technical in my entire reffing career. However, I feel a well respected ref (notice I did not say liked) will get less flack from...

No T, no credibility?

What do you all think are the consequences for NOT giving a T when a coach crosses the line? I coached for a number of years before reffing (this is my 3rd year doing varsity, 5th overall). I have...

Technical Foul - shooter

My apologies if this has been recently covered.

In my original post

I tried to articulate team A trying to stall out the balance of the game by moving the ball across the court, not advancing to the hoop, and avoiding a closely guarded call. As B1 came up on A1 to...

The rule book does mention getting by the defenders shoulders. Do you all read that to mean past the plane formed by his shoulders (N - S plane), or, by his shoulders on the E-W plane?

A bit of a rephrase

I do know how the rule is written. However, I have never seen an official make a five second call on a player who is not advancing to the basket and his defender is squarely behind him (not uncommon...

It was such a great response that I couldn't bring myself to spoil the moment. Player A got his, I just wish others could have heard it!

After a brief altercation between two players (nothing serious, just needed a "go to your corner" talk), the boys quietly exchange these words as they move down court. Player A: "Yeah? Well f***...

"interesting calls"

I chalked this one up as one I'll probably (and hopefully) never see again. I am a fan (not a ref) watching a JV match. Team B has spot throw-in under their own bucket. A6, a sub, is waved in by...

Timeout

V boys match. Team A possesses ball. Team A assistant coach calls a timeout. Our head ref granted the timeout then assessed a technical to the head coach. Correct call?
