How does traveling occur during a basketball game?

Traveling occurs when you or another player has the basketball and you take more than two steps without dribbling! Also if you jump up with the ball and then come down with the ball still in your hands it is Called a travel as well. If you are going for a layup you may take two steps! Also if you have the ball and you dribble and then pick up your dribble and then dribble again it is called double- dribble and is almost the same thing as traveling! If any of this happens the ball goes to the other team! Hope this helps!

What is a lay up in a basketball game?

In the NBA, a layup is when the player takes FOUR steps towards the basket and leaves off one foot (usually opposite of shooting hand) and attempts to score a basket (backboard or no backboard). The term is the same in NCAA, and HS basketball just 2 steps instead of the NBA 4 stepper.

How many steps on a layup?

You are allowed one in a half steps when in motion to shoot a layup, your first foot that lands when picking up the dribble counts as one half step your second foot that lands counts as a half step and then your third foot that lands the one you will jump off of to shoot the layup counts as a half step giving you a grand total of one in a half steps hope this helps... a lot of people get confused with counts each foot that lands as a whole step...

How do you know that a basketball dribble has completed?

Usually it is when the player has both hands on the ball. After this point has been established, the player can take two steps (or nowadays, with the rule change, basically three steps).This is why one can argue that spin moves where the player seemingly takes three steps is actually two steps because the dribble is potentially still alive (see Dwyane Wade or Lebron James).
