[Applause] play

[Music]

he

[Music]

all right early in the period we have some rebounding action a foul is ruled the officials rule this to be a shooting foul what do you have on this play put your ruling down in the comments and stick around to the end of the video where we’ll look at all of the things on play number one all right let’s move on quickly play number

two

now

all right a super short clip but it’s great to see these plays in the wild we we read about it in the Rules book we don’t always see it uh when it occurs of course we’re going to have to have a very flexible net in this situation but we have the ball entering the basket from below this is a violation this is in this case no there’s no team control um in this case it is by the opponent of the of the team this would be a blue throwin at one of the four throwin spots the one closest to the violation H how would we determine that if it went through the

basket uh but it’s just great to see these plays on video so that we can you know put the rule with the actual action in the game this you know if we’re working this game we may see this action we’re then it’s like wait a minute wait a minute right it may take a moment to process what has actually occurred on this play but it is a violation on a team to cause the basketball to enter the basket from below this would be a violation by white it’s inadvertent but it happens and it would be a blue throwin on the end line if we were in a shot clock State this would be a reset of the shot clock yeah yeah yes it would so not something we see every day great to see it on video just so we can catalog it put it in our memory bank for when it occurs in the game understand if it occurs in the game there may be some processing time involved we can always come late on this play but yeah yeah it’s good to see the play in the wild you know it’s great to see plays that are very uncommon but what I find common is the fact that we have tremendous show supporters who help fuel our broadcast who is up on the show supporter Big Board today Stan bickler Philip go Bert Jamie Daniel ravensoft and Tom hickey much appreciated much love you want to support the show I will ensure a link is placed upon the screen in the show description in the first pin comment

and up above awesome let’s move on next

[Applause]

[Applause] play

[Applause]

[Applause]

[Applause]

no

all okay another play just great to see it in the wild you hear about these things sometimes you see video of it but we have a player who loses their shoe picks up their shoe is playing basketball holding their shoe player goes to the basket and the defensive player blocks the shot with their shoe what do we have on this

play this is a player tactical vowel by rule yeah yeah I would say by rule I don’t know if we’d find it in the rule but uh this would be a player technical in this situation Our Calling official does a great job of like we’ve had something unusual occur in the game Let’s slow down and communicate and figure out exactly what we have how to proceed our crew gets together they talk about it they say this is going to be a player tactical

foul yeah yeah not something you see every day right in addition on this play we have some additional action here that’s good to review right black has a throwi in shot clock 35 seconds starts on the touch or that’s the way we do it here in California this player in white grabs the basketball and throws it that should be a reset this should be uh White has a shot clock going white has a shot clock going right and it was reset that’s fantastic many times you’re not going to see that from your shot clock operator but just be aware yeah yeah um yeah yeah so not a play we see every day um great job by the crew processing slowing down wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute we’ve got something atypical here’s what I have on the play this is how we’re going to adjudicate Etc we’re moving forward um and then identifying it as a player technical foul so great job on that play scenario hey thanks to Phil dicket for that play scenario it’s great to see it in the wild again uh if you want to submit a play to five playay Friday I’ll put a link here on the screen it’ll be in the show description it will be in the first pin comment and yeah mhm mhm it’ll be up above all right let’s move on next

play foul goes against number 30

heel at the APK service free throw line Sydney

Roberts missed the first one off the front [Applause] B next foul will be back in the [Applause] bonus yeah that was their

fourth

all right not something you see every day we have misaligned players on a free throw our officiating crew does not recognize this scenario we attempt a free throw with the players in the position what is the proper ruling H H not something you see every day right if we’ve got players uh simply the two players in the uh closest to the camera being in that position and the free the ball becoming live we have a simultaneous violation by rule in that situation the free throw therefore has ended anytime that the shooting team is involved in a simultaneous violation the free throw has ended either a shooting team one of their players violates or a simultaneous violation so at this point we should have a violation it’s not a delayed violation this free throw attempt is over this is the first of two um our lead official says okay wait a minute I’ve got something something to figure out here indicates a delayed violation our Center official comes in and says hey this is how we’re going to rule on this play that free throw has ended by rule great job there but of course this uh always brings up the scenario that when we have free throws especially the first of two free throws we can sometimes become a little disconnected from the play we as some like to say take a little me time we’re we’re taking a breath um becoming disconnected from officiating the game not being as diligent as we can be and uh yeah yeah that can happen so we have official training that’s available on free throw scenarios all the rules and restrictions and it does address the uh concept of me time as we like to say and I’ll put a link here on the screen it’ll be down in the show description as well where you can find that training for new and experienced basketball officials let’s move on let’s look at our next play block charge let’s take a look smile with it over on the right wing comes off of a screen into the paint in a little bit of trouble kicks it over to koal he’ll jump all the way into the Baseline and another char will be called on

koal it’s that time who took that foul Ryland sat I was going say it looked like he took the foul and now

he’s all right Block charge from Center Banger what do you have on this play in the end I think our Defender legal and there’s some interesting aspects of how they get to legal in this situation let’s take a look at all of the

things right so we are centers on an island here I think our lead official had been ball watching previously right and the question whenever we have a play scenario like this is okay who is officiating whom is our Center official officiating this player here or is our Center official off officiating this player here or is our Center official officiating both players right we have a block charge that occurs here who belongs to this Defender here um that’s always the case but let’s take a look at the play

itself Welly that’s a banger that’s a banger so something about this play is our Defender right we would expect them to take another step and not be legal in in this situation but they don’t let’s take a look

here we’d expect our Defender to move that left foot but they don’t they St they stop in this position our player is on the floor our player goes up did they continue to move I don’t think enough to make this a block hold

on they are

here

yeah I’m buying it I’m buying what the center official is selling on that one it’s close it’s

close but of course we can look at all the things in this

scenario right our lead official is officiating off ball got a cutter coming through sees the drive coming down the lane stays with that the lean probably could step a little wider of course anybody who watched this show knows I’m not a fan of working as lead in a pinch position would’ be much better to be wider here but then when the ball goes we have to make a decision right now while the ball is in Flight what we’re going to do as lead our lead stays

put yeah Center takes it yeah I like it I like it close play close play yep but in the end yeah I like it hey back at the start of the video we had play number one let’s review play number

[Applause]

[Music]

one [Applause] [Music]

[Music]

on this play we have we’re early in the period we are not in the bonus we have the second of two free throws a player leaves the floor displaced was this a foul on the defense was this a shooting foul did our crew handle things correctly here on this play this is a great play right this is a shooting foul that player was tapping the basketball they were were certainly vertical the defensive player in an effort to box out displaces the player this player should be on the line for two they are we didn’t communicate that at the spot and what do we expect from our uh coach our defensive coach in this situation he sees uh you know the offensive player go well how would how would a coach phrase it over the back right when you when you walk under or back under I like to call this play a back under play this um this displacement occurs in this fashion these players go up that is a tap attempt for goal that a Airborne player is displaced we are shooting two could have been more clear as The Calling official here because we were not in the bonus um but a great job of the crew communicating prior to the attempting of free throws to make sure that we get it right this play was correctly

ruled yeah we like it hands up everywhere right this is we have to fight for these plays we know this is the correct ruling on this play many people see the outside player coming over the top over the back that’s what they see when they see this play but as officials we need to recognize that this player left the ground legally our our inside player displace them by contacting them while they were Airborne what does this lead to it leads to a toppling over on top of the inside player and that’s what many people see on this play but this play was properly ruled great get by our lead

official yeah yeah so many positives on the play um this is how we want to handle these back under walk under plays and a great job by Our Calling official on this one all right we have time for a bonus play who doesn’t like an exciting finish let’s take a look at a bonus

play they had at the first two over eight seconds for Robinson Robinson first game back of the New Year Vader at the horn it goes Z Robinson wins it for Valley what a game I could say he’s

back Rogers will throw in five on the clock it’s Rogers Costello Costello at the horn it goes Bing Costo WIS it at the hor for luy in the greatest game I have ever seen you are kidding

me holy

cow a miracle has happened at the walk Fieldhouse Mason Costello has etched his name in history but wait a minute he didn’t call Bank does that count I do not believe what I have just seen what all right a thrilling finish the announcers had called the game on the first basket right here gamewinner not so much not so much Greg because the the clock expires in this situation but let’s look at the habits and fundamentals of the crew these are obviously the most essential moments of the game and how we handle them is critical right in this scenario all three officials recognize a timeout by white in the situation that’s exactly we need to be super aware of timeout requests knowing that a timeout is available to the team anticipating that they may make a timeout request after the scored goal somebody going to get hurt man come on now we got kids jumping on the pile we got players at the bottom aay I mean we love a good finish but he and then we have some things on the resulting throwin and tremendous shot that gets off let’s look at all of the things on this play first off here we are we understand the situation we’re under 6 seconds two OTS right this is the end of the second overtime right that’s our game everybody is looking at that shot everybody should have an opinion about whether the shot gets off we weren’t really close Etc and then when the ball goes in the basket Center and Trail recognize a timeout request by the coach I think our lead official recognizes a timeout request by a player it appears that occurs at0 7 we end up with 0. five on the clock there’s going to be a moment we look at the coach we look at the clock Etc we don’t have the opportunity to go back and look at video and and adjust the clock accordingly they go with 0 five we have a Thro in play that we need to be aware of the shot appears to get off in time the clock didn’t start early it didn’t start late it’s certainly within the time frame we can’t judge for sure we can’t see the clock the try is released the ball goes in bedum ensues a great job by our crew in this situation now let’s look at we’re coming out of the timeout we’ve granted the timeout we’ve put time on the clock and we have this throwin scenario what do we expect we if we’re in double overtime we got to figure both teams are in the bonus we often times teams will attempt to run a play where they set a screener white 30 in an attempt to get the uh player who’s guarding the basketball to run them over and and get a foul and then shoot two free throws it’s a it’s a desperation move oftentimes we’ll see our our screening player uh actually do something illegal themselves in an attempt to draw the fowl so we need to be aware of that in this situation we have the very deliberate positioning by our Center official right we’re in great position right we just want to we just want to be aware so they may we would expect this ball in this situation they’re not going to throw it to White 30 right that’s what not what we would expect would we let’s take a look our uh our Trail official indicates that the player has the ability to run unsuccessfully uh trying to draw a foul there our player grabs one step leases phenomenal phenomenal who doesn’t like a game that ends in this fashion well in this instance black black didn’t like it but uh a great way for our game to end so love it last second shot super exciting we love that in our game but all of the habits and Fundamentals by our crew here are really critical we want to be super aware of timeout requests try to get the clock as close as possible uh T of a second really matter in this situation we want to anticipate on the resulting throwin we want to let the play Let It All Play out call us super obvious in end of game situations and hopefully we can have exciting finishes as well and feel like we did all of the things we were fully prepared each step along the way our crew does a great job here and that is tremendous and you know what else is tremendous we’ve got a tremendous group of show supporters who’s up on the show supporter Big Board today Stan Bickler Philip Go Bert Jamie Daniel Ravenscroft and Tom Hickey much appreciated much love yes indeed on the screen show description first pin

cow a miracle has happened at the walk Fieldhouse Mason Costello has etched his name in history but wait a minute he didn’t call Bank does that count I do not believe what I have just seen what all right a thrilling finish the announcers had called the game on the first basket right here gamewinner not so much not so much Greg because the the clock expires in this situation but let’s look at the habits and fundamentals of the crew these are obviously the most essential moments of the game and how we handle them is critical right in this scenario all three officials recognize a timeout by white in the situation that’s exactly we need to be super aware of timeout requests knowing that a timeout is available to the team anticipating that they may make a timeout request after the scored goal somebody going to get hurt man come on now we got kids jumping on the pile we got players at the bottom aay I mean we love a good finish but he and then we have some things on the resulting throwin and tremendous shot that gets off let’s look at all of the things on this play first off here we are we understand the situation we’re under 6 seconds two OTS right this is the end of the second overtime right that’s our game everybody is looking at that shot everybody should have an opinion about whether the shot gets off we weren’t really close Etc and then when the ball goes in the basket Center and Trail recognize a timeout request by the coach I think our lead official recognizes a timeout request by a player it appears that occurs at0 7 we end up with 0. five on the clock there’s going to be a moment we look at the coach we look at the clock Etc we don’t have the opportunity to go back and look at video and and adjust the clock accordingly they go with 0 five we have a Thro in play that we need to be aware of the shot appears to get off in time the clock didn’t start early it didn’t start late it’s certainly within the time frame we can’t judge for sure we can’t see the clock the try is released the ball goes in bedum ensues a great job by our crew in this situation now let’s look at we’re coming out of the timeout we’ve granted the timeout we’ve put time on the clock and we have this throwin scenario what do we expect we if we’re in double overtime we got to figure both teams are in the bonus we often times teams will attempt to run a play where they set a screener white 30 in an attempt to get the uh player who’s guarding the basketball to run them over and and get a foul and then shoot two free throws it’s a it’s a desperation move oftentimes we’ll see our our screening player uh actually do something illegal themselves in an attempt to draw the fowl so we need to be aware of that in this situation we have the very deliberate positioning by our Center official right we’re in great position right we just want to we just want to be aware so they may we would expect this ball in this situation they’re not going to throw it to White 30 right that’s what not what we would expect would we let’s take a look our uh our Trail official indicates that the player has the ability to run unsuccessfully uh trying to draw a foul there our player grabs one step leases phenomenal phenomenal who doesn’t like a game that ends in this fashion well in this instance black black didn’t like it but uh a great way for our game to end so love it last second shot super exciting we love that in our game but all of the habits and Fundamentals by our crew here are really critical we want to be super aware of timeout requests try to get the clock as close as possible uh T of a second really matter in this situation we want to anticipate on the resulting throwin we want to let the play Let It All Play out call us super obvious in end of game situations and hopefully we can have exciting finishes as well and feel like we did all of the things we were fully prepared each step along the way our crew does a great job here and that is tremendous and you know what else is tremendous we’ve got a tremendous group of show supporters who’s up on the show supporter Big Board today Stan Bickler Philip Go Bert Jamie Daniel Ravenscroft and Tom Hickey much appreciated much love yes indeed on the screen show description first pin
