Best Answer

'Over a third' is an infringement which occurs when the ball passes completely over a whole third of the court without being touched by another player.

Eg. If a Goal Keeper takes a 'throw in' from the baseline, the ball must be touched by a player in the goal third before it reaches the centre third. This is NOT the case, however, if the throw in is taken from the sideline.

It is this rule that prevents a Goal Keeper throwing directly to a Goal Shooter.
