There are two methods of playing a half-court game.

One method is that if the ball is missed but hits the rim or backboard, the opposite team (the team that shot the ball can rebound and shoot as they please) must take the ball back. If the ball is missed and hits nothing, then the opposing team does not have to take the ball back.

The second method is the same except that the ball must be taken back under all circumstances for the opposing team, should they gain possession of the ball.

What is a back court violation?

A "Back Court Violation", sometimes called "over and back", occurs when an offensive player, while in control of the ball, crosses or touches the half court line only after the ball has been established in the "Front Court." The "Front Court" is a basketball team's offensive half of the court. The "Back Court" is a basketball team's defensive half of the court. After "in-bounding" the ball from or to the back court, dribbling the ball in the back court is allowed until the ball is established in the front court. The Ball is considered in the front court when a player controls the ball and both feet are past the half court line. Also, when a player is "Dribbling" from the "Back Court" to the "Front Court", the ball is not considered to be establish in the front court until both feet and the ball have entered the front court . Once the ball has been established in the "Front Court", an offensive player may play a ball in the back court only if a player on the defensive team controls, touches or knocks the ball in or to the back court otherwise it is a "Back Court Violation".

If the defensive team tips the ball away in the frontcourt but the offensive team tips it after that wo regaining possessionThen the offensive team recovers the ball in the backcourt. Who's ball?

There are several violations in basketball that are called back court violations:1) The offensive team has 8 seconds (NBA) or 10 seconds (college) to bring the ball from the back court to the front court after inbounding. If the offensive team cannot advance the ball from the back court to the front court in the time allotted, a back court violation is called.2) Once the offensive team brings the ball across the mid court line, they may not pass the ball to a teammate who is behind the mid court line. This is also commonly called an 'over and back violation'.3) Should an offensive player lose control of the ball in the front court, due to their own error, and the ball cross the mid court line back into the back court , the offensive team cannot regain possession of the ball without having a back court violation (over and back) called.
