How far is a half court shot?

Half the length of the court, right? Well not exactly. The key word is far. First: NBA and NCAA courts are 47 feet for each of 2 courts not counting a 2 inch separation at the center, where the 2 halves meet. Second: The center of the basket is out 5 feet 3 inches from the inside of the base line: ( backboard 4 feet + bridge 6 inches + one half of the 18 inch (ID) goal ) = 4' + 6" + 9" = 5' 3" Third: For a half court shot you are standing just past the center line. The line is 2 inches wide. So the half court distance to the goal center is: [ ( 47'+ 2"(line)) - 5' 3"] or 41' 11" minimum.

Is a half line ab the same as half line ba?

No. A half line (also called a ray) is a linear object which starts at the first point, and extends to infinity through the second point. So the half-line (or ray) AB starts at point A, and shoots 'through' B and continues past B to infinity. The half-line BA is the other way around: it starts at point B, and then shoots 'through' A and continues past A to infinity. These two half-lines/rays end up extending to infinity in opposite directions, so they are not the same (not congruent).

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".

Over and back rule in basketball?

The Over and Back rule is pretty simple. Once the ball passes the half court line,(in 8 seconds , or a 8sec. violation is called) the team with the ball cant go past the half court line again. If the other team tips the ball and it goes onto the other side of the line. you can grab the ball without the "over and back" violation. Over and Back, RARELY occurs in the NBA because most teams like to play the ball down low, or around the 3 point line.
