It's a lane violation if the ball has not yet touched the rim. the penalty is forfeit of the shot. in peewee through colllege, the shooter, his teammates, and their opponents cannot step on or over the line either. In NBA, the shooter's teammates and opponents can step both on and over the line as soon as the ball leaves the shooter's hands, but the sooter must wait until it touches the rim.
