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.

If it hits the other team and goes back, then no. However if it hit your own team mate and goes back court, then yes.

Is it a backcourt violation if the inbounds pass in the offensive zone is touched by the same offensive player who BeFORE has possession crosses midcourt to gain possession in the backcourt?

The question is sort of confusing, I will answer the best way I can: you can inbound the ball and pass it to someone backcourt, even though you had already crossed midcourt. So for example: if the defense fouls you (not a shooting foul), your team keeps possession, when you inbound the ball, you can pass it to a player that is backcourt and it won't be a violation. Hope this helped.
