* Backcourt Violation: ball & both feet

This topic is resumed: see below..


My team has possession in frontcourt and defense knocks ball Out of Bounds. A1 is inbounding about 5-6 feet from the half court line in the frontcourt, throws bounce pass to A2 in backcourt. But the "bounce" hits the floor in Front Court before A2 catches it in BC.

Another coach calls it a backcourt violation.  Is that a Back Court violation, so a Turnover?

You can't have a backcourt violation until there is team control, so until they do that. There is no team control on a throw in and team control doesn't exist until the ball is caught or dribbled.
No backcourt violation is the correct answer: the offensive team never established team or player control in the front court.

This post RESUMES the topic

About the rule: A backcourt violation occurs when the offense allows the
ball - which is in the frontcourt (past halfcourt line) - to go behind the midcourt line and touches it in the backcourt after having completely crossed the mid-line and before the opposing team touches it. This doesn't apply if the defense causes the ball to return to the backcourt. A player's location is determined by where he last touched the floor. Thus, if he jumps from the backcourt to the frontcourt and receives a pass from the frontcourt while in the air, it's an immediate violation. When a backcourt violation is called, the opposing team is awarded the ball.

Commentary: Backcourt violation occurs when the offensive team enters their own frontcourt with all three points, the ball and both feet of the player in possession of the ball, and return one of the points to the backcourt. So, if a teammate is already in the frontcourt (both feet and the ball) and passes to a teammate who is not yet legally in the frontcourt, then that is a backcourt violation.



The Officials: The trail official is responsible for the centre line and therefore blows his whistle once, gives the stop clock signal followed by the ball returned to backcourt signal and the direction of play signal.

Remember: For a ball returned to the backcourt and violation to be penalized by the officials, all three (3) principles must have occurred:

1. A team must have been in control of the ball.
2. That team must have been the last to touch or be touched by the ball in the frontcourt.
3. The same team must also have been the first to touch or be touched by the ball in the backcourt.
