Pivot Foot

Pivot Foot:
A player who has possession of the ball but is not dribbling must always keep one foot on the ground . This planted foot is known as the pivot foot .

If a basketball  (external link) player gets control of the ball with both feet on the floor, either foot can become the pivot foot . If the player catches the ball while on the air, the first foot that hits the floor is the pivot foot .

Once the pivot foot has been established, the player can take any number of steps with the other foot, provided the pivot foot remains in the same spot. Moving the pivot foot , except to leave the floor for a pass or a shot, is traveling.

Spanish ~ Español - pie de pivote
