A "Back Court Violation", sometimes called "over and back", occurs when an offensive player, while in control of the ball, crosses or touches the half court line only after the ball has been established in the "Front Court."

The "Front Court" is a Basketball team's offensive half of the court. The "Back Court" is a basketball team's defensive half of the court. After "in-bounding" the ball from or to the back court, dribbling the ball in the back court is allowed until the ball is established in the front court. The Ball is considered in the front court when a player controls the ball and both feet are past the half court line. Also, when a player is "Dribbling" from the "Back Court" to the "Front Court", the ball is not considered to be establish in the front court until both feet and the ball have entered the front court . Once the ball has been established in the "Front Court", an offensive player may play a ball in the back court only if a player on the defensive team controls, touches or knocks the ball in or to the back court otherwise it is a "Back Court Violation".

If the defensive team tips the ball away in the frontcourt but the offensive team tips it after that wo regaining possessionThen the offensive team recovers the ball in the backcourt. Who's ball?

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.

Is it a back court violation if a Team A is dribbling in his front court and a team B player swipes the ball hitting the team A player before it goes to the back court and a Team A picks up the ball?

YES, it's a over and back if the ball touches a player on team A BEFORE going back court, because even though the player's hand didn't touch the ball it touched his/her body, therefore if they go back and get it, it's a turnover and over and back violation. IF a player on team B "tips" the ball, meaning touches it, and the ball goes back court and DOSE NOT touch a player on team A or goes out of bounds, the other player on team A CAN go back and get it and WILL NOT result in an over and back violation, because team B touched it last.

Will NC extradite for misdemeanor probation violation?

To my knowledge there is no such thing as "Felony" or "Misdemeanor" probation violation. If you violate probation, you are in contempt of court, and have absconded from the imposition of a court ordered sentence, both of which can get you sent back to jail to serve your sentence for the conviction for which you were serving probation.
