How often do you see a jump shot in a girls game?
And frequently the "shooting foul" is called just after release.

Thus the question.

Set shot - act of shooting

Many players shoot a set shot, therefore they are not an airborne shooter.

So do you call a shooting foul if the defender crashes into the shooter immediately after they release the ball?

Travel or Jump Ball?

What do you call?

A1 drives to basket, begins to gather ball, but defender puts hand on the ball (pins it) which causes A1 to take extra steps.

Second half inbound - 5 seconds

Easy question:

We have a 5 seconds violation against Team A on the throw in to start the 2nd half.

Does the possession arrow change after Team B subsequently inbounds the ball.
