JEWELRY NOT PERMITTED
NFHS rules do not permit jewelry to be worn during basketball practices or games. Necklaces, earrings, rings, etc. are not permitted. Coaches have primary responsibility to make sure players are legally equipped. If observed in pre-game officials should ask coaches to address the issue with the players. If the players come onto the court with illegal equipment they should be asked to leave the contest until they can be made legal. Officials cannot ignore players wearing jewelry because they don’t want to be the "fashion police".

THE DIFFICULT JOB OF OFFICIALS - WHAT THE FUTURE MAY LOOK LIKE
The following link is to a great article by Scott Rosberg on the future of officiating and what things may look like if we continue to lose officials because of poor behavior of coaches and fans. The Most Thankless Job In Sports http://team.fastmodelsports.com/2016/11/29/thankless-job-sports/

COACHES - CHECK THE BOOK
Coaches are reminded to check the book prior to the 10 minute mark to ensure all players are listed, the proper numbers are included and the number of quarters left to play is correct. It is the responsibility of the coach to make sure this is taken care of so no technical fouls are necessary for an incorrect book. Coaches must pay close attention to the number of quarters played so we have not 6th quarter violations.

CAMERA BEHIND BACKBOARD
I have had several questions concerning schools having a camera behind the backboard and whether that is permitted or not. Most of these cameras are called "go-pro" cameras and are recording the game from behind the backboard. Provided these are behind the backboard and not distracting they are permitted.

NO DUNKING DURING PRE-GAME WARM UPS
Players may not dunk during pre-game prior to their game or during the half-time of the preceding game. Administration and coaches are responsible to make sure players do not dunk during these periods. Once officials arrive on the court if dunking occurs the penalty is a technical foul. The foul is also charged indirectly to the head coach. This rule is outlined in the KSHSAA basketball manual and is to be followed by all schools during the regular and post season. [ Continue ]
