Rules

-Standard 2 and 3 point shots apply

-Exclusive 4 point shots when a player is touching ANY PART of the “4 Point Circle”

-A shooting foul on a missed basket will reward 1 free-throw shot attempt to the shooter:

-On a 2pt attempt. Player gets 1 shot (for 2pts) from the free throw line.

-On a 3pt attempt. Player gets 1 shot (for 3pts) from the top of the 3 point line.

-On a 4pt attempt. Player gets 1 shot (for 4pts) from the top 4pt circle

-All personal fouls will be counted as team fouls: No foul outs.

-On and after the 5th team foul (per half) opponents get 2 shots and ball possession

-A technical foul results in opponent being awarded 2 free-throw shots for 2-points each and possession of the ball.

-First team to 60 Points wins

-Half-time happens after a team scores 30 Points

-Team must win by 2 Points

-Substitutions made on a dead ball or by calling time

-On a made basket, the ball is thrown to the official up top or the lead official will retrieve the ball and pass to the top. The team who was scored upon becomes the offense and the scoring team becomes the defense

-After a score (only), or missed technical foul shot, the ball must be taken out up top. After the official hands the player the ball, that player can start play dribbling in or passing it in bounds. This must be done within 5 seconds.

-Defensive rebounds (that touch the rim) MUST BE CLEARED

-The ball is cleared when the player with the ball establishes both feet behind the 3 point line. The ball can be cleared by dribbling or passing

-The defensive rebounder that makes a direct pass that clears the ball, must clear the lane and re-establish himself before his team's shot or pass hits the rim

-If a shot or pass hits the rim without being cleared it will result in a turnover

-Once a team has cleared the ball and establishes itself on offense, the normal “3 seconds in the key” rule applies

-There is no defensive "3 second" rule

-Steals do not have to be cleared

-Defensive rebounds that don’t touch the rim do not have to be cleared

-Instant replay applies
