   2007-08
Rules Changes
       Replacement Interval Changed
              (2-12-5, 10-5-3)
• Timeframe often used as an “unofficial”
  time-out.
• Interval reduced from 30 seconds to 20
  seconds.
• Includes:
  – Disqualified player
  – Injured player
  – Player directed to leave the game
     Replacement Interval Changed
            (2-12-5, 10-5-3)

• Warning horn sounded with 15
  seconds remaining in interval.
  (five seconds into the interval)
• Coaches encouraged to replace
  player in a more timely fashion.
       Warning Horns Changed
               (2-12-4, 5-11-2)
• 30-second time-out warning horn
  changed to be sounded with 15 seconds
  remaining.
• Results in all warning horns to be the
  same – 15 seconds remaining.
• Includes intermissions, time-outs and
  replacement interval for a disqualified or
  injured player.
             Ending a Dribble
               (4-15-4d, 9-5-2)
• Definition of when a dribble ends
  changed.
• When dribbler’s loss of control is caused
  by the opponent touching, or being
  touched by, the ball.
• Rule changed to reflect long-standing
  interpretation.
           Ending a Dribble
             (4-15-4d, 9-5-2)
• That any touching of a dribble by a
  defender (intentional or otherwise,
  by the hand or otherwise) ends the
  dribble.

  must be intentional.
             Ending a Throw-in
                        (4-42-5)
• The word “legally” added to definition of
  when a throw-in ends.
• It now states:
  “The throw-in ends when the passed ball touches, or
    is legally touched by, another player who is either
    inbounds or out of bounds.”
• Previous rule could reward defensive team for
  committing a violation – especially during an
  AP throw-in.

 NFHS Basketball

     2007-08
Points of Emphasis
     Uniforms – Enforcement
• Team members may not
  participate:
 –If uniform is not worn properly – if
  the jersey is not tucked in and pants
  worn above hips.
 –If wearing items such as jewelry,
  illegal undershirts or undergarments
  that extend below the pants/shirt.
       Uniforms – Enforcement
• Players in violation of uniform rules may
  not enter or shall be directed to leave
  the game.
• Coaches bear a great responsibility to
  ensure uniforms are properly worn.
• Officials must enforce the rule as
  written.
      Free Throws – Rough Play
• The block between players continues to
  serve its initial purpose.
• The same is true for player restrictions
  ending when the attempt hits the ring
  or backboard.
• Coaches must not teach players to “lock
  up” arms along the lane line, nor drive
  players further under the basket with
  brute force.
      Free Throws – Rough Play
• Officials must call fouls for illegal
  contact and displacement on free
  throws.
• A free throw is the same as any other
  try and must be treated as such.
• If rebounding contact is illegal – a foul
  must be called.
       Free Throws – Violations
• Officials must review and enforce the
  rules regarding offensive and defensive
  free-throw violations.
           Displacement
• Displacement is a foul and must
  be called.
       Displacement – Post Play
• A foul must be called without warning
  when the offensive player uses the
  “swim stroke,” pushes, pins, elbows,
  forearms, holds, clears with the body, or
  just generally demonstrates rough
  physical movements or tactics.
       Displacement – Post Play
• The defense may assume a legal guarding
  position at the side, in front or behind the
  offensive post player.
• A foul must be called without warning when
  the defense undercuts (initiates lower-body
  non-vertical contact), slaps, pushes, holds,
  elbows, forearms or just generally
  demonstrates rough, physical movements or
  tactics.
     Displacement – Post Play
• When a player dislodges an
  opponent from an established
  position by pushing or “backing
  in” – It is a foul.
     Displacement – Screening
• A legal screener must be:
  –Stationary prior to contact .
  –Within his/her vertical plane
   (hands, arms, legs and feet no
   more than shoulder width apart).
     Displacement – Screening
• When these two requirements
  are NOT met – and when there
  is sufficient contact delivered by
  the screener to bump, slow or
  displace – it is a foul on the
  screener.
       Displacement – Screening
• Blind screen – outside visual field or a rear
  screen – only legal when screened player
  permitted a normal step backward.
• Screened player must make attempt to get
  around screen without forcing rough or
  “displacing” contact.
• If not – foul on the screened player.
     Displacement – Screening
• Screener illegally moving in an
  attempt to set a screen – no
  contact occurs with the
  opponent – NO foul has
  occurred.
        Ball Handler/Dribbler –
               Traveling
• Areas of specific concern are:
  –Post-players spin moves.
  –Post-players step-through moves.
  –Rebounders repositioning for put-backs.
  –Jump stops.
  –Perimeter shooters taking an extra “hop”.
  –Ball handlers lifting the pivot foot before
   releasing the ball on the dribble.
         Ball Handler/Dribbler –
                Traveling
• Only way to determine legality of those moves
  – first find the pivot foot.
• If the player moves a foot or the feet in any
  direction in excess of prescribed limits – a
  traveling violation has occurred.
• Officials must challenge themselves to
  improve their accuracy in this area.
• Players’ skills will then improve as a result.
        Ball Handler/Dribbler –
               Palming
• Offensive players “palming” the
  ball continue to gain a
  tremendous advantage.
• Emphasis must be given to:
  –Dribbler’s hand position.
  –Activity of the ball while the dribble
   is occurring.
