Dead ball refers to any period of the game when the clock is not running.
after a free throw (which is a dead ball situation) if they miss the basket and you catch 'the rebound'
over the back.
Yes. The only time it would not be live is if the batter, when swinging, hit the ball with his/her hands it would be a dead ball.
At the next dead ball
At a foul, time out, dead ball, etc.
It dosn't, but as soon as batter touch ball, ball would be dead and runner would have to return
Yes. When the ball remains out of play the clock is stopped.
yes. but only on a dead ball. You can't call a defensive time out when the ball is in play.
A deadball in basketball is when someone who is dribbling the ball, stops dribbling. That person is just stuck in that spot until a teammate comes to retrieve the ball. You can only be "dead" for 5 seconds with a defender on you.
