UNIFORMS MUST BE PROPERLY WORN
Officials are observing more players "rolling the waistband" of their uniform shorts, which exposes multiple manufacturer logos/references/trademarks. There are several issues with this. Rule 3-5-5 indicates "apparel shall not be modified from the original manufactured state and shall be worn in the manner the manufacturer intended it to be worn." The rolling of the waistband is not as the shorts were intended to be worn. In addition, some of the waistbands show multiple logos. Only one visible logo is permitted on the shorts/pans/skirt. Coaches need to address this with their players. Officials should make players correct the uniforms before participation. If not corrected, the player will need to leave the contest.

NO DUNKING DURING WARM-UP PERIODS
Players may not dunk the ball at any time during warm-ups, regardless of whether or not the officials are present. It is the responsibility of coaches and game administration to ensure this does not occur. This includes halftime warm-ups of the preceding game. Players shall not grasp the baskets at any time during the game except to prevent injury; dunk or stuff, or attempt to dunk or stuff a dead ball. (NFHS BB Rule 10-3-3)

KSHSAA Executive Board policy states: Officials observing dunking during a warm-up period (including halftime of the proceeding game) should report the team violating and the number of the player violating to the score table. This may be the officials waiting for the next game, or the officials from the game in progress. The officials who have jurisdiction over the game will administer a bench technical to the violating team prior to the game starting. The bench technical is an indirect technical to the head coach. It results in the loss of coaching box privilege. (10-1-5a) If a glass or backboard is broken due to dunking or grasping a ring during warm-up, the responsible school shall be liable for the cost of replacing the board.

INTENTIONAL FOUL OR STRATEGIC FOUL
During end of game situations it is not uncommon for a team to foul players in an attempt to put them on the free throw line hoping they will miss and give the team behind an opportunity for another possession and ability to score. The challenge for officials is to know the difference between an intentional foul and a strategic foul. Strategic fouls are a playing strategy. Officials must be able to recognize the difference and call the foul appropriately.

A strategic foul is one that involves illegal contact while legitimately trying to steal the ball, even though the underlying intent is to stop the clock. An intentional foul has the same intent, that is to stop the clock or prevent it from starting, but it is done without playing the ball. It is done by grabbing the uniform of the player with the ball or grabbing him/her around the waist or by grabbing them with two hands. [ Continue ]
