A1 is dribbling the ball in his/her backcourt when:
|(a)||the Team B head coach requests and is erroneously granted a time-out by an official; or|
|(b)||the Team A head coach is yelling “side out” offensive instructions to his/her team and the official stops play believing the coach requested a time-out.|
|In (a),||Team B is entitled to use the time-out since it was requested and granted; once granted it cannot be revoked and is charged to Team B. All privileges and rights permitted during a charged time-out are available to both teams. Play will resume with a Team A throw-in nearest to where play was stopped.|
|In (b),||an inadvertent whistle has occurred. Team A was not requesting a time-out, and therefore, should not be granted or charged with one. Play is resumed at the point of interruption.|
