Best Answer

The 3 second call in the lane does not start until the offense has brought the ball into the front court. At this point if a player spends 3 or more consecutive seconds in the lane, they are violating the 3 second rule. There is no three-second count during rebounding action or during an out-of-bounds throw-in. The count on a player in the restricted area is suspended when that player begins to try for a goal (shot).

If a defensive player is in the painted area for three seconds while not guarding an offensive player, the officials can call a defensive three second violation.
