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.

What is considered over and back in basketball?

It is announcer-speak for when a player reaches over another player from behind, typically in a play for the ball. It is typically cited as a foul, not a violation.Contrary to popular belief, however, it does not in and of itself constitute a foul. To be a foul, it must occur with illegal contact (and not all contact in an over-the-back situation is necessarily illegal). It is often yelled by spectators and coaches alike and, unfortunately, even called by some officials. But there is no foul called over-the-back--and it does not exist as a call available to officials, either.

What is Definition of over and back?

In Basketball, once an offensive player passes the half court line with both feet and the ball, the team may not take the ball into the back court unless it is deflected (last touched) by the defense. A player who has just crossed the line with the ball and brings it back into the backcourt is not "over & back". They have not yet established the ball in the front court, therefore cannot have a backcourt violation
