When you step on the line, you are out of bounds. You cannot step on the boundary line at all and still be in bounds.
the referee is considered "part of the court." if the ball hits him, it is still in play.
yes, but the ball will be out of bounds
You can be walking, running, or standing still when dribbling the basketball.
in order for a ball in basketball to be considered to be out of bounds the ball MUST touch/hit the ground out bounds ... if the ball does not touch/hit out of bounds the ball is still live a play can go out of bounds to throw/pass the ball back in bounds so long as the player that is going for the ball bounds feet are in the air when he makes contact with the ball ...
yeah, ur thinking of football when if a receiver goes out of bounds, he can't touch the ball first. In basketball, you can jump into the crowd if u want and back and then still get the ball.
Only if it stays there. If it comes down inside the lines, then it's still in play. If the ball touches the very top of the backboard it is considered and declared out of bounds to most referees.
if someone says that the ball is alive they means that ithasn't gone out of bounds yet and you could still pick it up and go score
There is a change in posession, the team that shot the ball loses the possession
If the opponent has established position out of bounds (at least one foot on the floor) then the ball would still be yours. If the opponent is in the air and has not established position out of bounds the ball is still live.
