Team A properly submits its team member list and designates the five starters as required at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the game. Anytime thereafter, either before the game starts or during the game, the coach asks the scorer to change a number in the scorebook:
(a) so it corresponds to what the team member is wearing;
(b) because a player’s shirt has excessive blood on it; or
(c) because a player’s shirt is torn.

(a), a technical foul is charged to Team A. In
(b) and
(c), the shirt is changed and the number change made in the scorebook without any penalty.
