When do you get a three second violation?

== == If an offensive team player stayed in the key-hole (painted area) for more than 3 seconds its called a 3 seconds violation. Ball awarded to the opposing team! In the NBA, there is also a defensive three second call. If a defensive player is in the painted area for three seconds while not guarding an offensive player, the officials can call a defensive three second violation. This rule was put in to keep teams who play the zone defense from placing a player in the lane solely for rebounding or keeping an offensive player from driving the lane.
