NFHS Case Play 9.7.1

A1 rebounds the ball off Team B’s backboard. A2 is in Team A’s three-second restricted area when the rebound occurs and A2 remains there while A1 is dribbling in Team A’s backcourt. Three seconds expire without the ball being in the frontcourt of Team A.

This is not a violation. The three-second lane restriction is not in effect until Team A is in control of the ball in Team A’s frontcourt.
