*scratches chin*

Ground-rule double.
 
2013-02-12 07:28:02 AM  
It's from where the shot was attempted, so 3 points.

Can you even bounce it in like that?

/serious question as I'd never thought about it

If a player makes a shot after bouncing it off the ground and into the hoop, the player who was closest to it when it bounced off the ground would be awarded two points as the ball would be considered a loose ball after it left the bouncer's hands and the rule would revert to the rules of scoring in loose ball situations, just as when a player scores on his own team.

In other words, no soup for you.

Huh, never knew that rule.  So much for learning something today.

Hey, she did it with great fundamentals.  Like leaving enough time on the clock for the other team to inbound the ball and get it to the other end of the floor where they pretty much stood around doing nothing.

I wouldn't be shocked if the scorekeeper didn't know that and awarded the girl a 3-pointer.

And now I want to see this happen in a game that matters, just for the clusterfark that would follow

I've never seen someone bounce it in at the men's collegiate or pro level before.  I am surprised.  It seems inevitable.

And this is just one reason why basketball is just a kids game and not a sport.  Ask me about baseball.

With great fundamentals.
 
2013-02-12 09:10:30 AM  
Air Ball is Air Ball. I am pretty sure whoever is closest will get the points, just as if the other team had tipped it in. .

*scans thread*

I see I am not the first to suggest the whole "whoever's closest". Simply put, that girl missed her "shot".

 To be clear that obviously wasn't a "shot" either. It was an awful pass.

Her image in the vid was too small for me to check out her "fundamentals".
 
2013-02-12 09:33:33 AM  
Why did she take a 3/4 court shot when there was time left on the clock?  (The other team had time to inbound it and dribble it back to the other end.)
 
2013-02-12 09:37:06 AM  

PreMortem: It's from where the shot was attempted, so 3 points.


Two points.

It is not a shot once it hits the ground.

Technially if she threw the ball over her head and it went in, it was not a "shot" so it should be 2 points.

Trivia Jockey: Why did she take a 3/4 court shot when there was time left on the clock?  (The other team had time to inbound it and dribble it back to the other end.)


Pretty sure she was attempting a deep pass for a breakaway
 
2013-02-12 09:39:12 AM  
It looked more like a terrible downcourt outlet pass than a shot.  I mean, let's be real.  A high school girl isn't going to heave one full court with any prayer of the ball coming close to the glass.  So I vote terrible pass that took a lucky bounce into the hoop.  Oh, and with good fundamentals, too.

If that's true, it was more like a derp pass.

Too bad it's a volleyball game

2013-02-12 09:58:52 AM  
I believe all you guys saying "closest player to the ball", but that seems like a pretty damn stupid rule to me. Why should another player be credited with a basket when they didn't even touch the ball? Is there a reason for that rule? I must be missing something.
 
2013-02-12 10:01:17 AM  
So the final score was 3-0?

sorry.  ball becomes dead when it hit the floor.....after that it is an illegal try.  no score.

The only way it happens normally is if a guy going for a defensive rebound taps it in by accident giving the other team two points.  I guess they decided the points have to go to somebody.  It's sort of silly but it's also so unusual it hardly matters.

Wrong.  No goal.  There was a clear offensive foul before the ball bounced in the basket.

I witnessed this  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvPoY06zyIM when I was in high school (and feel old now). I was also shocked that I found it so quickly (and that it was on youtube).

Quick tip:
Scorekeepers only put up the score based on what the refs signal.  After each basket, one ref signals the number of points and the score keeper adds the number of points indicated by the ref.

but there was no one running for the break.  i think she was confused about the clock situation.  no one could miss a pass by over 50 feet.

Well it was the 3rd quarter, no real need to rush it.

Because she missed her "shot" (it really was just a horrible pass).

It's like the other team accidently tips in a shot. Whoever is closest to the basket gets the points credited to them by default.
 
2013-02-12 11:06:07 AM  
I think she was confused by fans counting down (the shot clock?)

Wrong.

It no longer becomes a try when it hits the floor, but the ball is not dead.

You were saying?
 
2013-02-12 11:34:10 AM  
When does the division between 2 and 3 points happen on a "shot" like this?  When the ball bounces, or when it falls through the hoop?  Because when it bounces, all the offensive players are still behind the 3-point line, but one of them is pretty much under the basket when the ball finally falls through. Or is the distance taken from the point where it bounces?  So is this still a 3-pointer or just two?

And it does look like a terrible outlet pass, intended for the girl who was going up the middle of the court (and the one that ended up under the basket).

National Federation of State High Schools basketball rulebook:

SECTION 2 SCORING
ART. 1 . . . A successful try, tap or thrown ball from the field by a player who
is located behind the team's own 19-foot, 9-inch arc counts three points. A ball
that touches the floor, a teammate inside the arc, an official, or any other goal
from the field counts two points for the team into whose basket the ball is thrown.


= 2pts
