The ball is in flight during a try or a tap for goal by A1 when time for the third quarter expires. After time expires, the ball is on the ring or in the basket or is touching the cylinder above the basket when it is touched by:
(a) A2; or
(b) B1. The ball then goes through the basket or does not go through.
(b), the ball became dead as the try ended with the violation. In
(a), no points can be scored because of the offensive basket interference by A2. However, in
(b), since the touching is defensive basket interference by B1, two points are awarded to A1. Whether or not the ball goes through the basket has no effect upon either ruling.
