if it does not completely go through the hoop it does not count as a basket. :)))
Before the 3 second rule, big centers (like Wilt Chamberlain) would just wait under the basket, get the rebound, or the ball from a teammate and make an easy basket...this is how he scored 100 points one night.
I am a high school basketball official. Good Question. There is a rule on what to do if that situation arises. Rule 2-10 is about "correctable errors." It states that the officials may correct an error if a rule is inadvertently set aside and results in: a. Awarding of an unmerited free throws b. Failure to award an unmerited freethrow(s) c. Allowing the wrong player to shoot the free throws d. Allowing a player to shoot the free throws(s) at the wrong basket e. Erroneously awarding or canceling a score. You are interested in "D." Officials may correct this error (provided it is recognized during the first dead ball after the clock has properly started). No matter how many he/she made or missed at the wrong basket, the free throws are nullified and he/she shall shoot at the proper basket. During this, points scored, the time consumed and all related activity prior to the recognition of the error shall not be nullified; meaning if a team scored then the error is realized, that basket counts.
If an offensive player posseses the basketball and is closely (within 6 ft) guarded by a defender, he must shoot, dribble, pass, or advance the ball toward the basket. It was reinstated to avoid stalling.
1 rule is you can not run with the ball
There is no 90 second rule in basketball.
Side out scoring is a term used in volleyball to state that a point can be earned only by the team that is serving. This rule was in place until 1998 when it switched to rally scoring.
because that is the rule...
4 points, but if foul it it is 3 point. This is the columbian basket ball rule.
Because that is the rule.
The main rule in basketball is teamwork. It is in no way an individual sport.
Number of pins scored on the subsequent ball + ten.
you don't score a hit in hockey
There is no offside rule in the sense that the term is usually used in soccer and ice hockey. It is not necessary that the defenders have one or more men between the ball and the basket. However, there are other rules to regulate player positioning. The over-and-back rule requires that once the attacking team has moved the ball into their opponents' half of the court, they may not move it back to their half again. This concentrates the action nearer to the basket. The "no camping" rule declares that no defending player may spend more than three seconds within the lane at a time, so the defenders can't just "camp out" under the basket to prevent shots on it. Hence all the inefficient-looking jockeying for position under the basket.
Dunking is not allowed.
5 fouls out the game
There are many like the shotclock violation, 8second rule
if you travel in basketball, than it automaticly becomes the other teams ball.
One rule of basketball is that you have to dribble the ball and never travel your feet because then you let the other team get a chance to take the ball.
The shot clock.
