Case Study

Event: A Shot Made from Under the Hoop

Spanish ~ Español: Lc Debajo del Aro
Code: SH01


A player takes a shot from under the hoop, he throws the ball up and it passes the hoop from below, then falls back down and passes the hoop from above, like in an ordinary shot.
Is this shot legal and its score is calculated normally ? Which is the statistical tracking ?


It is a violation: the ball must enter the basket ONLY from above.

Rule Fundamental=
"..... Travel, kick or fist - no player shall travel ( run with ball ), kick it, strike it with the fist, or cause it to enter and pass through the basket from below..."

The ball becomes dead or remains dead when the violation occurs. Ball is awarded to a nearby opponent for a throw-in at the out-of-bounds spot nearest the violation.

eBA Basketball Statistics Tracking=
FGA for the "shooter" and a 'team rebound' for the defensive team.
