    Any refs out there (or anyone who wants to play ref)?

    I am a high school basketball coach who had two calls go against my team that I had never seen before. We are playing a team of high fliers tonight and they were trying to set up a back door lob for a dunk. My guy fouled the opponent running up for the lob (tripped him on accident). The refs gave the other team two shots saying the guy who was going up for the lob was in the act of shooting. He never touched the ball. I simply asked how he could be shooting without the ball? The refs conferred and stuck with their call.

    About two minutes later, same thing. Ref immediately signaled two shots. He came over and told me he had to be consistent.

    Anybody know if this is the right call or not? Seems to be you can't be shooting without the ball.

    I would think the refs have this wrong because the player fouled was a pass recipient who had not yet "shot" the ball, but I can see where there could be confusion. I would love for one of our resident refs to chime in.

    Re: Any refs out there (or anyone who wants to play ref)?

    Its the same as we saw with Kane last night. It's in the act of a pass, not a shot. It's a foul, but not worthy of free throws.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Can't be a shooting foul unless in the act of shooting the ball. Can't be in the act of shooting the ball without the ball.

    Was the other team in the bonus? Unless they were in the act of shooting or your team had 7 fouls against them, no free throws should of be awarded.

    We had three team fouls, so they were not in the bonus. He explained the cutter was in the act of shooting.

    Sounds like bogus calls to me. I would contact the IAHSAA & discuss.

    I'm pretty sure thats the wrong call.

    However, they really 'accidentally' tripped the lob guy twice? Almost sounds like you had the play scouted and made sure you had some contact on the lob guy.
