TRAVELING - POINT OF EMPHASIS
While traveling is a point of emphasis this year, there has been no rule change, just a point of emphasis. Rule 4-44 is the

  • When one foot is lifted, the other is the pivot foot.
  • A player, who catches the ball while moving or dribbling, may stop, and establish a pivot foot.
  • If both feet are off the floor and the player lands, simultaneously on both feet, either foot may be the pivot foot may be the pivot.
  • If both feet are off the floor and the player lands on one foot followed by the other, the first foot to touch is the pivot foot.
  • If both feet are off the floor and the player lands on one foot, the player may jump off the foot and simultaneously land on both. Neither foot can be a pivot foot in this case.

After coming to a stop and establishing a pivot foot, the pivot foot may be lifted, but not returned to the floor, before the ball is released on a pass or try for goal.I encourage officials to watch video of plays to determine when there is a travel and when a move is legal.

GAMES NOT PLAYED-COVID SITUATIONS
Games that are not played due to a team being quarantined do not count as a win or loss. They are considered no game played. They do not count as a forfeit. Seeding for postseason is based on a percentage of games played, so if a team is not able to complete a 20-game schedule, the number of wins will be divided by the number of games played.
In regular season tournaments the team able to play should be advanced in the bracket, but that is not a forfeit win. The team not able to play would move to the consolation side of the bracket, but it does not count as a loss.

FORFEITURE POLICY – BB Manual pg. 22
If a regular season game (including invitational tournaments) is not played due to a team/school not having enough players to field a legal team, and both schools agree that a make up date cannot be determined, the game will count as a forfeit and win in postseason for the team who was willing and able to play. The game would count as a loss for the postseason seeding for the team lacking players. The forfeiting school must notify the KSHSAA and indicate the reason for the forfeit. A letter will be sent to both schools indicating the game should be recorded as a forfeit.

SITUATION OF THE WEEK
Following A1’s successful goal, B2 is holding the ball out of bounds for team B’s non-designated spot throw-in along the endline in team B’s backcourt. While B2 is still holding the ball, B3 cuts for the ball and is held by A4. A4 is whistled for the foul. When B3 was fouled, B3 was located (a) near the endline in team B’s backcourt, or (b) in team B’s backcourt near the division line. Team B is not in the bonus. Where is the resulting throw-in and what kind of throw-in shall occur?
