FROM THE "eBA SYSTEM CLINIC"
from the eBA Permanent Clinic 3rd. Month Meetings:



The Hand IS Part of the Ball in Basketball: Rule & Statistics Tracking


From the NBA Rules: The mere fact that contact occurs does not necessarily constitute a foul. Contact which is incidental to an effort by a player to play an opponent, reach a loose ball, or perform normal defensive or offensive movements, should not be considered illegal.

If, however, a player attempts to play an opponent from a position where he has no reasonable chance to perform without making contact with his opponent, the responsibility is on the player in this position.

The hand is considered "part of the ball" when it is in contact with the ball. Therefore, contact on that hand by a defender while it is in contact with the ball is not illegal.



Section 24, Article 2 of the NFHS Handbook of Basketball Rules: It is legal use of hands to reach to block or slap the ball controlled by a dribbler or player throwing for a goal or a player holding it and accidentally hitting the hand of the opponent when it is contact with the ball.


Therefore, the mere fact that contact occurs does not mean a foul has been committed. Players are allowed to contact other players when reaching for a loose ball, or when performing normal offensive and defensive movements.

The hand is considered “part of the ball” when it is in contact with the ball and contact with a players hand when it is in contact with the ball is not a foul.

In a general play good coaches teach the defender to make the attempt under the hand of the offence from the either the front and or ball side of the body.

When the ball is "no team control" with players after it, there should be a more lenient interpretation on hand / wrist contacts until team control is gained: eg. a scramble that may end up in a jump ball.

In the 2009' rule changes was deleted the specific comment that the hand was part of the ball ( when in contact with the ball ). However, FIBA has actually re-introduced the idea that the hand is part of the ball.

The official interpretation of the rule is that if the referee has any doubt as to where the contact occurred ( i.e. on the hand in contact with the ball or in the wrist) the referee must call a foul.

That's means, the hand is still part of the ball, but the official must be sure that the contact by the defender was on the part of the player's hand which was in contact with the ball. If he is not ABSOLUTELY certain, he must call a foul.

As we can read in this thread: when the hand is in contact with the ball ( not just shooting, but holding and dribbling the ball as well ), it is taken into consideration as "part of the ball".

Any contact with a hand on the ball is considered not of prime importance and is no penalized. In this case US and FIBA rules coincide.

Basketball Statistics Case Studies

Last Month Case Study Conclusion:

About a Basketball Rebounds Statistics Tracking Case Study


"... A missed shot comes off the rim and bounces along the floor. A1 is in position to pick up the ball, but B5 gains control. However, B5 fouls A1

1. before either can touch the ball;

2. as B5 is the first to touch the ball;

3. after B5 is first to gain control of the ball; or

4. after A1 is first to touch the ball.

What is the proper ruling and the correct INDIVIDUAL or COLLECTIVE statistical registration according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System including the type of the registration ( type of turnover; forced, unforced, individual or collective turnover, good or bad foul; close, long, disputed or undisputed rebound; assist made, potential, missed or double assist; etc. ) ..."


Conclusion:

Basketball Statistics Philosophy:

AA player should be credited with a rebound only if the player earned that rebound before the ball was dead.
What happened after the ball became dead and what would have happened had the ball not become dead might be different.

eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:

The statistician should not attempt to decide what would have happened, but should decide only what did happen.
However, if there is doubt about player control, the statistician may assume that there was control.

Sometimes there is doubt about whether a player has gained control of the ball before a certain act takes place. In such cases, the statistician should use the following guidelines.
(a) If the statistician feels there was a possibility of player control, then the play shall be treated as though there was player control.
(b) If the statistician feels there definitely was not a possibility of player control, then it shall be treated as though there was no player control.

eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking:

In 1., the ball became dead when the foul was committed. Credit Team A with a dead-ball rebound.

In 2., if B5 gained control before the foul, the official will have indicated that the foul was a player-control foul and B5 would be credited with an individual LONG or CLOSE DISPUTED rebound and charged with a FORCED turnover. If there is no indication of player control, then credit Team A with a dead-ball rebound.

In 3., credit B5 with an individual LONG or CLOSE DISPUTED rebound and charge him with a FORCED turnover.

In 4., if the statistician thinks that A1 possibly had control before the foul, credit A1 with an individual LONG or CLOSE DISPUTED rebound. If the statistician thinks that A1 definitely did not have control, credit Team A with a dead-ball rebound.
