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.

Backcourt Violation: When a team brings the ball back inbounds they must get the ball across the mid-court line within 10 seconds. If they don't the other team gets the ball back. Also if a team brings the ball across the mid-court line and then takes it back across the line, they lose the ball.

backcourt violation (1) Touching the ball in the backcourt after it has entered the frontcourt and was not last touched by the other team.

By taking away long passes and forcing the offense to be deliberate with the ball and make smart passes and ball reversals, it's going to wipe a lot of time off the shot clock and potentially force a backcourt violation.

As a result, whereas trapping may be more likely to produce intercepted passes for the defense, run-and-jump defense is generally more effective in producing charging fouls, ten-second backcourt violations, or passes thrown out-of-bounds.

Also called a "Backcourt violation".
Overtime: When a game is tied at the end of regulation play, the two teams play a five minute (NBA) overtime. A game can include as many overtime periods as necessary to determine a winner.

considered in the front court only when the offensive player with the ball has both feet over the center line. So, if a teammate is already in the frontcourt(both feet and the ball over half court) and passes to a teammate who is not yet legally in the frontcourt, then that is a backcourt violation.
