If that happens you MUST let the ball fall first then get the rebound to lay it back up. Otherwise the ref. may call offensive interference, and the other team gets the ball. Or if someone on defense pulls it down before letting it fall the ref. may call "goal tending" and you'll get the points.
Yes, the backboard or any supports are considered out of bounds.
Carom meaning to strike and take back once again.
The word backboard has two syllables. Back-board.
A backboard is a raised vertical board with a basket attached. It is often made of Plexiglass. A basketball hoop is mounted to a backboard through a flexible connection in the backboard and the connection supporting the hoop. The shock of a basket or dunk is absorbed by the connecting part, so that the rim goes back to the horizontal position again.
It is commonly known as a basketball backboard.
The backboard is 15 feet from the back of the free throw line.
Say you threw a ball at someone and it bounced back, thats a rebound
To come back
If the ball goes off the rim and over the backboard then it is out of bounds. If it goes off the rim and hits the top of the backboard but falls back in play on the front side of the backboard, then it isn't out of bounds.
Yes, it is. As long as the ball does not hit the back of the backboard or the shot clock, the shot is valid.
The easiest way to fix a backboard that a guy paid to build and he did it wrong, is to remove the Spalding basketball hoop from the backboard. You can then attach it to a new backboard, that is not tilted forward, and you won't have to be sick and tired of a bad backboard anymore.
