6" . A STANDARD RECTANGULAR BACKBOARD IS 42" HIGH. THE TOP OF RIM IS 36" FROM THE TOP OF BACKBOARD, SO THAT LEAVES 6" FROM THE BOTTOM OF BACKBOARD TO TOP OF RIM.
The dimensions for a rounded basketball backboard in the NCAA is only slightly different than the dimensions for a rounded basketball backboard in the NBA. NCAA regulations allow the basketball backboard to be 4 feet high,Êwhile the NBA requires that the basketball backboard be no more than 3 1/2 feet high.
The Ball is still in play. Back surface is the only out-of-bounds part of the backboard. (Supporting elements, such as pipes or poles or arms, etc. are obviously not part of the backboard or rim and are out of bounds.)The ball traveling OVER the top of the backboard is OUT of bounds. I believe this rule was put in place because Wilt Chamberlain would score from the other side of the board.Some sources say that if the backboard is 'fan shaped' or arched top, then the over-top rule does not apply, but does if the backboard is rectangle.It's amazing to me how many times this happens at the gym and players call it out of bounds. Cmon! You gotta know the rules if you want to play the game. No one ever knows this rule, but here it is:Rule 4, Section I - c. All five sides of the backboard (top, bottom, both sides and front face) are in play. As long as the shot stays on the top of the backboard, it is still in bounds. When it falls through the basket, the goal counts. But once the ball crosses over the backboard - regardless of where it comes to rest - it is out of bounds.
yes the reff calls it out of bounds.
It depends but most are 11 feet high.
