The interpretations of the different situations can stimulate the officials’ minds and will complement an initial detailed study of the rules themselves. The FIBA Official Basketball Rules shall remain the principal document governing FIBA basket ball. ficials However, the of shall have the full power and authority to make decisions on any point not spe- cifically covered in the FIBA Official Basketball Rules or in these FIBA Official Interpretations. , ‘team A’ is the (initial) offensive team, ‘team B’ is nterpretations For the sake of consistency of these I A12, B6 – B5 are players; A6 – A5, B1 – the defensive team.

This is particularly important to take into consideration near the end of a quarter or overtime. There must be a minimum amount of time available for such a shot before time expires. If 0:00.3 second is shown on the game clock or on the shot clock, it is the duty of the official(s) to determine whether the shooter released the ball before the game clock or shot clock signal has sounded for the end of a quarter or overtime. If, however, 0:00.2 or 0:00.1 second is shown on the game clock or on the shot clock, the only type of a valid field goal scored by an airborne player is by tapping or directly dunking the ball .
