Three-seconds Rule.

The rule that no part of an offensive player can spend no more than three consecutive seconds within the free-throw lane unless the ball is being shot. Having any part of either foot on or inside the line is considered being in the lane. If the shot hits the rim, the player standing in the lane gets a new three seconds. Once a player steps outs the lane, the count resets, and can reenter the lane for another three seconds.

3-seconds Violation.

See: 3-second Rule.
