I coached middle school basketball for over twenty-five years. I always worked on shooting at practice, every day, for everyone on the team, good shooters, and bad shooters. And short players (and...

So Easy ...

So easy a NFHS director of sports and officials and liaison to the Basketball Rules Committee can do it.

Why Diminish The Role Of Adult Coaches Ö

Agree, just bringing up another minor problem, one that I do not want the NFHS to fix.

Tennis Anyone ???

Yes, coaches can be distracting, especially if you let them. No matter what level, no matter what rule set, if there's a coach involved, an official will have to deal with the coach.

I could have replied to Pantherdreams seriously, or facetiously.

I guess that I chose poorly (apologies to the Grail Knight).

Do we stop the clock with an open hand and then follow it up with the old held ball signal, or is the held ball signal completely gone?

If it's gone, how will the table crew know that it's a held...

No it doesn't. Never did. Never said it.

Doesn't apply to what? Sorry, not sure I understand your question other than to restate that player control is not written into the backcourt rule.

The ball's status as in player control? Yes. But player control isn't mentioned in the backcourt rule (as written).

Holding, Dribbling ...

Because while both have player control, one is holding the ball, and one is dribbling the ball. And player control is not written into the backcourt rule.

Agree with your definition of player control. Agree that this is a backcourt violation. Fuzzy on the irrelevant part. Touching seems to be relevant, not necessarily player control, to the backcourt...
