This call is only made in the NBA == == Defensive 3-Second Rule - Any defensive player, who is positioned in the free throw lane or the area extending 4 feet past the lane's end line must be actively guarding an opponent within three seconds. Actively guarding means being within arms length of an offensive player and in a guarding position. The defensive three-second count is suspended when: (1) a player is in the act of shooting, (2) there is a loss of team control, (3) the defender is actively guarding an opponent, (4) the defender completely clears the 16-foot lane or (5) it is imminent the defender will become legal. Infraction of this rule results in a technical foul.

Otherwise known as three-seconds-in-the-key-way.

Players on the offensive team are only allowed 3 seconds in their keyway at anytime, well, as long as the ref is looking.

If called 'Three-seconds' the ball is given to the opposing team from the baseline.

When someone stands in the paint (under the goal or right in front of the free-throw line) for three seconds, the ref will whistle, and the offensive team (team with the ball) gets a free throw for one point. Now in a offensive three seconds is when the team that has the ball, and someone on that same team gets the three seconds, the other team (defensive team) doesn't get free throw shot, they'll just get the ball.

What is a lane or key violation in basketball?

A lane violation is when a player tries to get a rebound before the ball gets to touch the rim during a free throw (high school rules). A key violation or "3 in the key" is when a player (offensive player or defensive player) is under the basket (known as the "paint") for more than 3 seconds.


Types of basketball violations?

There are many violations of basketball. You can not move with the ball when you are not dribbling. That is called a travel. The only exception is when you take two steps for a layup. You can not dribble the ball, pick it up, and then dribble again. That is called a double dribble. If you are on offense, you can not stay in the key for longer then 3 seconds or else you will get a 3 seconds call. You have 5 seconds to throw the ball in when it is out of bounds. If you don't get the ball inbounds in time it will be a turnover. You have 10 seconds to get the ball down the court onto the opposite half to which the ball was thrown in. If you don't get it across halfcourt on time that will be a turnover. These are just a few of the many violations.

What is the three second rule or lane violation in basketball?

In 1935, a rule was adopted that stopped any offensive player from standing in the free throw lane for more than three seconds. In 1955, the foul lane was widened to 12 feet (3.7 meters) from the previous 6 feet (1.83 meters). These changes resulted in more offensive movement and less rough physical contact near the basket.
