It is now legal when a player falls and slides on the floor while holding the ball, as long as it is unintentional. It is a travel if the player rolls or attempts to stand up without dribbling the ball.
BALL GOES INTO TEAM’S FRONTCOURT
During a dribble from the backcourt to frontcourt, the ball goes into a team’s frontcourt when BOTH feet of the dribbler AND the ball are in contact with the frontcourt. This means a player may move their feet into the frontcourt and continue their dribble in the backcourt, and then return their feet into the backcourt again.
FAST BREAK – UNSPORTSMANLIKE FOUL
If a defensive player causes contact from behind or laterally in an attempt to stop a fast break and there is no opponent between the offensive player and the opponents’ basket, then the contact shall always be called an unsportsmanlike foul. The level of contact is not important; if a foul is called, it MUST be an unsportsmanlike foul.
Any player who is disqualified from a game MUST leave the stadium immediately.
SWINGING ELBOWS – TECHNICAL FOUL
A technical foul can be called on a player for excessive swinging of elbows (without contact). Kilsyth referees are directed to warn a player first. If contact is made, then the referees should judge whether an unsportsmanlike foul is appropriate.
