In basketball, the clock stops for every time out, foul, and out of bounds violation. It should also stop at the sound of the referee's whistle.
A jump stop is when a player literally jumps to a stop before ceasing to dribble the basketball, making sure to land with both feet simultaneously. The benefit of this is that the player then has the option of using either foot as the pivot foot. If the player steps to a stop, the pivot foot is automatically the last foot with which the player stepped before dribbling ceased.
The two sides of basketball are called offense and defense. On offense the team protects the ball and tries to convert a basket. On defense the team guards the ball and tries to stop the other team from scoring.
After catching the basketball in the air, the player has the ability to take two steps. After two steps, the player must stop. He/she may rotate on a pivot foot or may move freely, as long as they stop after catching the basketball in the air.This is assuming that by catch the player catches the ball with 2 hands, as if they control the ball with one hand, they don't have to stop at all.
Goalie is the abbreviated word for goalkeeper. The goalkeeper is the player in any team sport, requiring the scoring of goals, who is allowed to handle the ball or puck when trying to stop the scoring of goals.
