Basketball  Backboard  Backcourt violation

A Backcourt Violation (sometimes known as an 8-second backcourt violation or 10-second backcourt violation) occurs when the team with possession cannot advance the ball over the halfcourt line, into their opponent's half within a certain amount of time.

1. The offense is called for a backcourt violation after the point guard dribbles the ball off his foot and he grabs the ball after it goes into the backcourt.

Backcourt: The half of the court a team is defending. The opposite of the frontcourt. Also refers to a team's guards.

Backcourt: The backcourt refers to the area that is the opponent's part of the court. That is, the area including the midcourt line and everything back to endline including the opponent's basket.

Backcourt The half-court that is being defended; the defense's backcourt is the offence's forecourt.
Draw a foul To provoke a foul.
Dribble To bounce the ball on the floor; a player who stops dribbling and starts again has committed a double dribble.

~ and Frontcourt - The names for the half-court areas in which the two teams play defense and offense respectively. One team's frontcourt is the opposing team's ~.
Baseline - The out-of-bounds line at either end of the court under each basket.

~ - That half of the court that is the farthest from the offensive basket. Also, the position played by the guards.

The half of the court that is opposite a team's offensive basket; the court a team is attempting to defend.
Ball handler:
The player with the ball; usually the point guard at the start of a play.

~ - The half of the court that is the furthest from the offensive basket. It's also a generic name for the two guards on a given team.
Back-door cut - An offensive play where the player cuts behind the defender and toward the basket.

If an offensive team allows the ball to go behind the midcourt line and touches it before the opposing team touches it, it is called for a ~ violation and the opposing team is awarded the ball.

Note that in the ~ you have the 10 second rule in your favor, so traps there are good. Traps just past the halfcourt line are good, too, because the offense cannot retreat back across the halfcourt line. It like having an extra defensive player.

Full denial in the ~; invite long baseball pass. Make those uncomfortable handling (bigs) handle.
Seriously increase the tempo of the game. Increase opponent's turnovers
Allow entry pass in and allow ball reversals.

Section X-Ball in ~
a. A player shall not be the first to touch a ball which he or a teammate caused to go from frontcourt to ~ while his team was in control of the ball. EXCEPTION: Rule 8-Section III-e (EXCEPTION).

Also, a team may cross the midcourt line to retreat into its ~. A personal foul is the result of hitting, pushing, or blocking another player. In youth basketball players are normally disqualified from the game if they receive five fouls. There are also many time violations.

~: the area of the court extending from half court to the baseline where the other team's basket is located. This area must be passed in order to score. Once crossed, a player must not reverse or cross back into this area, otherwise a violation is called.

You will get steals and turnovers in the ~ that you can quickly convert into easy lay-ups. It is simply a full-court man-to-man defense, so it flows easily into your half-court man-to-man defense. Simply, you pressure the ball handler, and the other players try to deny a pass to their man.

When facing a man-to-man press, you should clear the ~ and let your point guard bring the ball up one-on-one. That's obviously sound advice.

On a ball reversal in the ~ x4 will go back on to his man and force 4 to dribble. If he dribbles at 2 then x2 will come up and trap. x1 rotates up and to the middle of the court to take away 3's flash. x3 protects deep, and x5 looks to steal a pass to 2 if possible.

Notice that the trap has occurred in the ~. Let's look at how we would play this if the player who is trapped passes back to the trailer.
On a pass back into the midlane, 1 and 2 reset in front of the ball. Remember that we MUST get the ball out of the middle! ...

I have used this in the ~,Midcourt,and Frontcourt areas on the Basketball court.It is a halfcourt trapping defense.
