team control during a throw-in we must establish team control on the court by
player control on the court once we have player control a player holding or
dribbling the ball then we have team control after that we could have a
backcourt violation and not until black has a throw-in throws it to a player
standing in the frontcourt the player muffs the ball they do not control the
ball in the frontcourt they dribble the ball in the back court official
erroneously rules a backcourt violation in order to have a backcourt violation
we must first have team control CH means player control on the court frontcourt
status then backcourt status last to touch first to touch that’s our formula
and it’s not achieved here this is a legal play and this is the play that
most often officials become confused about and have questions about balls
deflected by the defense into the backcourt we’re the first to touch ball
is deflected by the offense into the backcourt when it’s from a throw-in it’s
not a violation you you this isn’t a typical play it’s something
unusual that happens there’s some processing time involved but ultimately
this is Colin correct what do we have we have team control by white this is a
n-c-double-a women’s game actually gray but team controlled by the home team the ball is deflected
we still have team control and then team control is gained when the player jumps
in the air as the ball and lands in the backcourt defensive players are allowed
to do this legally doesn’t matter which foot lands first and then subsequently
second this is a legal play by the defender call incorrect so we have a throw in play let’s review
the throw in exception which allows an offensive player during a throw-in to
jump in the air receive the ball and then land in the backcourt it does not
matter whether they’re whether one foot lands first in the frontcourt and then
subsequently in the backcourt or first in the backcourt and subsequently in the
frontcourt they’re allowed a staggered landing by rule but on this play the
player is not does not jump to catch the ball she catches the ball when she is on
the ground and then subsequently puts her second foot into the backcourt this
is not part of the exception and is considered a backcourt violation by rule only a player who catches the ball in
the air is afforded the luxury of landing with a staggered landing by rule
this player has caught the ball with a foot on the floor and subsequently when
she puts her second foot in the backcourt
that is a backcourt violation you alright let’s just go through the basics
here and analyze this play team controlled by black holding dribbling
the ball in the backcourt this is clear balls past a player from the frontcourt
jumps grabs the ball in the air and lands in the backcourt now let’s just
break it down a player has frontcourt status when she contacts the ball in the
air the ball now has frontcourt status black is the last to touch in the
frontcourt causes the ball to go into the backcourt and is first to touch the
ball with backcourt status this is a violation by rule it’s very clear simple
straightforward this play during a throw-in or a play made by a defensive
player or a play during a jump ball is a legal play but in the normal course of
play this is clearly a violation by rule this is a phenomenal play and a
phenomenal call by the official on this play and it’s a great example of
understanding team control that’s the key here so what we have is a try for
goal yes try for goal there’s no team control the
ball is batted there’s no team control the player in black throws the ball back
on to the court they cut it and they throw it back onto the court that
establishes team control for black the ball contacts the backcourt okay so
where did the player leave the floor from this is a player with frontcourt
status we have team control in the frontcourt the player throws the ball
and it contacts the backcourt and black is the first to touch the ball with
backcourt status this is a backcourt violation by rule phenomenal that the
official took no time to process that he had it all figured out in real time
tremendous tremendous accuracy on this call and of course everybody’s confused
nobody understands it’s not unusual to see back court calls
after jump balls the players haven’t yet to set their orientation of which way
they’re going etcetera it’s just a spot where players can get confused and make
simple mistakes officials can get confused as well we just have to get our
bearings straight you see how neither the neither of the off ball officials
make this call always can come late on this just get the call right it’s Greg with abetterofficial.com thanks for sticking around to the end of the video we’ll see you in the very next one, all right? Take care.
