  1. During an interrupted dribble, the official inadvertently sounds the whistle. The official resumes play using the alternating possession procedure. Is the official correct?
  2. A1 jumps into the air and intercepts a pass. A1, while still in the air, throws the ball to the floor. A1 returns to the floor and catches the ball with both hands and starts a dribble. The official rules this legal play. Is the official correct?
  3. During a jump ball, the ball becomes live when the ball is legally touched. Is this correct?
  4. A1, who is in the frontcourt, has the ball batted away from him/her. While attempting to recover the ball, A1 bats the ball as it is rolling toward the division line. A2, who is in the backcourt near the division line, and with the ball still in frontcourt, bats it to A1. The official rules a backcourt violation. Is the official correct?
  5. Following a time-out A1, who is to attempt a one and one, delays outside the semi-circle. The official charges A1 with a technical foul. Is the official correct?

NOTE: To successfully answer questions, know the rules. Read the Rule Book. Some questions are based on rule interpretations. Read the Case Book. Sometimes questions answer themselves. “During an interrupted dribble, the official inadvertently sounds the whistle”. The question tells you the whistle was inadvertent(incorrect). Why should play continue with an alternate possession when team control never changed?
