Shot-clock operator mistake:

  • Al shoots with three seconds on shot clock—ball misses ring/flange, A2 gets

rebound.

  • Shot-clock operator erroneously resets clock on A2’s possession.
  • Team A runs offense for 10 seconds.
  • Timer has official stop play and informs her/him that a mistake was made by

resetting the shot clock.

Answer:

  • Call shot-clock violation—ball goes to Team B at end line.
  • If official has actual knowledge, time can be corrected on game clock (add

minimum of 10 seconds to game clock).

Note: On a shot that misses the ring/flange, do not wait to see if Team A or B gets possession.

Call the violation as soon as it is clear the shot will not hit the ring/flange.
