Secondary Defender –

Restricted-Area Plays

• Lead will likely have primary coverage for these plays when the

drive comes from the strong side.

• Center may have primary responsibility if a quick drive comes

from the weak side – Lead should pinch the paint in this case.

• Center and Trail will typically have secondary coverage.

Page 22: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Restricted-Area Plays

Signaling sequence for a block on the Secondary Defender in the

Restricted Area:

• Whistle

• Fist in the air

• Block signal

• Point to restricted area (new informational signal)

• Count the goal (if applicable)

Page 23: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Secondary Defender –

Restricted-Area Plays

• Treat this play like any other “help call” situation.

• Non-calling official(s) shall provide information to the calling

official if they have definitive knowledge about the location of

the player’s feet.

Page 24: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Secondary Defender –

Restricted-Area Plays

For example:

• If the Lead calls a charge because the secondary defender was

deemed outside the arc and the Center clearly sees she was

located inside the arc, the Center will provide that information

to the calling official.

• The calling official determines if a change shall be made.

• Officials are NOT permitted to use the monitor to see where the

defender is located.

Page 25: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Secondary Defender –

Restricted-Area Plays

• There may be NO arc on the floor at some Division II & III

institutions.

• Officials must do their best to adjudicate the rule with a “mental

image” of the size and location of the arc.

• When in doubt regarding the player’s location in relation to the

arc – it’s a block!

• “Help calls” should be virtually nonexistent when no arc is

present.

Page 26: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Timeout Administration

• Coaches have asked that officials NOT be in or close to the

team’s huddle near the end of a timeout.

• New end-of-timeout procedure established to accommodate

this request.

Page 27: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Timeout Administration

• When the warning horn sounds the two officials will move from

their spots toward the nearest team huddle maintaining a

distance of 10-15 feet away, raise the index finger and

verbalize “first horn.”

• If possible, get the attention of the designated assistant or the

head coach by making eye contact, and reinforce that the first

horn has blown.

Page 28: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Timeout Administration

• From this position make your presence known and do

something to encourage teams to break and to prepare for

play.

• Clap your hands and verbalize what you want — “Let’s go, first

horn.” “Your ball white,” etc.

• Be ready to resume play at the second horn (correction to CCA

manual).

Page 29: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Timeout Administration

• Based on the rules change already presented, if a team is not

ready for play when the second horn sounds, a warning will be

issued and recorded for the first offense.

• The warning is administered as follows:

• When either team is not ready to play when the second horn

sounds-

• administering official shall blow the whistle,

• verbalize that a ROP warning is being issued to the specific team.

• closest official shall inform the head coach and the official scorer

that a warning has been issued.

Timeout Administration • When a team has received a ROP warning and is making NO

movement whatsoever to resume play, the administering

official adheres to the following, slowly and deliberately :

• Make good eye contact with your partners

• Give a long, sharp blast of the whistle to indicate play is

about to begin.

• Verbally indicate the color of the team awarded the ball.

• Signal the direction of the team awarded the ball.

• Put the ball at the disposal of the thrower (put the ball on the

floor if the offensive team is delaying or give the ball to the

thrower if the defense is delaying).

Page 32: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Timeout Administration

• These rule and procedural changes are consistent with the

goal of improving the pace of play and keeping the game

moving.

• Officials must be consistent in administering the rule and

procedure – coaches and stakeholders have asked for this!

Page 33: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Crew Communication

• Officiating crews must take every opportunity to communicate

effectively.

• Of specific concern:

• The status of the ball – live or dead – in administering

penalties properly.

• Try attempts – in hand or in flight – when a violation or foul

(offensive or defensive) occurs.

Page 37: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Crew Communication

• The official with pertinent information must communicate with

his/her partners.

• When specific information is not available – officials must at

least ask the right questions of partners to properly administer

these situations.

Page 38: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Throw-in Spots

• Officials must be accurate in designating the throw-in spot in

the frontcourt – sideline or end line.

• When a violation or foul occurs in the frontcourt, the rules

require that the designated spot be nearest to where the

violation/foul occurred.

• The three-point arc IS NOT used to determine the nearest spot.

Page 39: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Disqualifying or Technical Foul

• When a disqualifying or technical foul occurs, the calling official

has the option to go opposite the table when an adversarial

situation has or could occur.

• Often the coach just wants an explanation of what the player

did to warrant the call.

• The official must have a sense of how confrontational the

situation may be and switch accordingly.

Page 41: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Official Signals

To promote consistency, only “official” signals pictured in the

CCA Manual should be given preliminarily or when reporting.

Hack/Hit on Arm foul signal

– fist across forearm or

wrist.

Page 42: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Official Signals

Push foul signal – arms

extended and parallel to

the floor, palms facing

outward.

Page 43: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Official Signals

• Team-control fouls vs. going the other way – these are two

distinct signals communicating two different types of fouls.

• The team-control foul signal indicates that an offensive foul has

occurred and there will be NO free throws.

• A foul signaling “going the other direction” typically occurs on a

rebound and if a team is in the bonus, free throws WILL be

shot.

Unofficial/Communication Signals

• Signals specifically designed to further communicate the

specific type of illegal contact that occurred, that an infraction

occurred before a try attempt, that there was no

possession/infraction, must be delayed.

Page 47: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Unofficial/Communication Signals

• Crews run the risk of one official communicating one thing

(juggling motion for no possession) at the exact same time that

a co-official is signaling a traveling violation.

• Unofficial/communication type of signals must occur after the

action to avoid conflicting information by a crew member.

Page 48: 2011-12 NCAA Women’s - ArbiterSports · 2011-12 NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Clinic . NCAA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL 2011-12 and 2012-13 RULE CHANGES . Rule 1 - Court and Equipment

Court Coverage

• Crews must do a better job of officiating the screen and try on

the Center’s side.

• The Lead must recognize the potential for a screen/try on the

weak side and rotate quicker or, at a minimum, pinch the paint

to assist the Center with this action.

• There is too much activity occurring on the weak side to expect

the Center to get it all.
