NFHS Case Play 5.8.3 Situation F

A1’s dribble is “interrupted” when the ball deflects off his/her shoe. A1 or a teammate asks or signals for a time-out as the ball bounces toward:
(a) the sideline; or
(b) the division line.

The request cannot be granted in
(a) or
(b), since A1’s dribble has been “interrupted” and the ball is loose.
