Two officials, ten players, one basketball?

In the circumstances you describe--two refs, no actual fight or confrontation--watching for "anyone off the bench" is not high on my list of priorities.

"On the endline" is ok; over the endline is an immediate violation, as bob said.

Rule 4-9-2: "The inside edges of these [boundary] lines define the inbounds and out-of bounds areas."

Nice work, Billy.

Why would NFHS not add that requirement to the rule book? How many people--refs, scorers, ADs, etc.--would look on the NFHS publication page? Not to drag this discussion out,...

Clearances?

A tangential twist to this issue: if coaches need clearances, must the "coach out of the stands" be cleared? And if so, who checks? If he/she doesn't have clearances, then what?
