Best Answer

When the offensive team has possession in the front court and throws the ball or loses control into the back court, the ball is dead and is turned over once and offensive team's player makes contact with the ball. If a defensive player is the last player to make contact with the ball in the front court before it enters the back court, the offensive team can regain possession without penalty.
