RULES Man-to-man defence is the only permissible defence allowed (i.e. no zone defence). Each game is started by a jump ball in the centre circle, and begins when the ball is tapped in by one player.
7) A basket from the field, from outside the arc counts as 3 points, within the arc counts as 2 points and a basket from a free throw counts as 1 point. After a basket the opponents will be given the ball to make a throw in from any point behind the baseline. If any violation is committed, the non-offending team should take a throw in from the side line.
a. Deliberately kicking the ball or striking it with a fist
b. Knocking the ball out of court
c. Dribbling with two hands on the ball at once or letting the ball come to rest then continuing to dribble (double dribble)
d. Running with the ball (travelling).
8) A personal foul involves personal contact with an opponent. If this occurs in the act of shooting two free throws are allowed, otherwise it is a sideline ball to the opposing team. Once a player has 4 personal fouls they take no further part in that game.
9) Back court violation: To be considered ‘live’ in the front court a player must have both feet in the front court, only once that has happened you are not to go to the back court. To learn more please visit www.fiba.com (Official Basketball Rules 2010).
10) Rule for final round: Teams are required to be on court ready to play their match/es within 15 minutes of the scheduled time. Should teams arrive later than 15 minutes after the start of the scheduled match time, they will be required to forfeit the match, awarding a 20 – 0 walkover to the opposition. A friendly game may be played on the tournament organiser’s discretion but will be dependent on court space and scheduled matches.
