During risco-east prairie game Thursday risco foul shooter received the pass from the under the goal referee while his feet were straddling the top of the key. The referee on the sideline immediately called a lane violation on the shooter. Anyone ever seen that before. It didn't seem to be that the under the goal ref was waiting a long time for the shooter to move in.
Can't say I have.
Technically is a violation, but I would warn first. Never had to call it in over 6,000 games😜
Sort of a 180 from the Oran-Dixon call of 1969.
The only way I could justify an official calling that would be if the kid was taking an excessive amount of time before
Shooting the free throw. Otherwise, the official needs to pay closer attention to what is going on and wait to pass the ball to the shooter
It is on YHC tv with under 3 minutes in the 4th if u care to see it
It was earlier than that, not sure where but was in second half
Like most officials that one has no common sense. He probably never played himself or sucked when he did.
30 something years ago our FT shooter received the ball from the ref then looked down and saw his foot was on the line. He moved it back and prepared to shoot. But the ref called him on the line for a turnover. We were up one with 10 seconds to play. Our opponents made a shot at the buzzer to win. It was our only loss at home. Yes I still remember it. 😕
Wow old roundballer that kind of stinks. One of those things that is burned in your bad memories.
That don't make sence, I thought the player had to shoot the ball first with his or her foot on the line before taking it away from them?
Deltan, once the official delivers the ball to the free throw shooter, he can cause a violation by several ways: 1. take more than 10 seconds to shoot,2. step on or over the free throw line, 3. step out of the side or back of the free throw semi circle. #2 is by far the most common error by the shooter. Hope this helps.
Okay semo ref thanks for clearing it up for me.
