A1 or A2 requests a time-out:
(a) while airborne A1 is holding the ball;
(b) while A1’s throw-in is in flight toward A2; or
(c) when the ball is on the floor at A1’s disposal for a throw-in.
The request is granted in
(c), but denied in
(b), as there is no player control while the ball is loose between players.
