NFHS Case Play 9.10.3

Dribbler A1 is closely-guarded by B1 in A’s frontcourt and the covering official’s count is at three when A1’s dribble is interrupted when the ball bounces off his/her foot. An additional two seconds goes by as A1 turns to get the loose ball and B1 remains within 6 feet.

The closely-guarded count shall be terminated when the dribble is interrupted, but it will start over if A1 continues the dribble or holds the ball and is again closely-guarded.
