Team A is in control in its backcourt for seven seconds. A1 throws the ball toward A2 in the frontcourt. B1 jumps from Team A’s:
(a) frontcourt; or
(b) backcourt and while in the air bats the ball back to A1 in A’s backcourt. Does this give Team A 10 more seconds to get the ball to the frontcourt?
(a), a new count starts because B1 had frontcourt location when touching the ball thus giving the ball frontcourt location. In
(b), the original count continues as Team A is still in control and the ball has not gone to frontcourt.
