I was going over a sample Q&A for a next level refs exam coming up. An answer stated the shot clock is reset to 14 secs after touching the ring.
It cited Art 29. Which has this rule.
Article 29.2.3. After the ball has touched the ring of the opponents’ basket, the shot clock shall be reset to
24 seconds, if the opposing team gains control of the ball.
14 seconds, if the team which regains control of the ball is the same team that was in control of the ball before the ball touched the ring.
However, during previous exam I recall the FIBA official interpretations using this exact scenario as an example.
17-20 Example: With 5 seconds remaining on the shot clock during the throw-in A1 passes the ball towards the basket where it touches the ring.
Interpretation: The shot clock operator shall not reset his clock, as the game clock has not started yet. The shot clock shall be started simultaneously with the game clock when the first player on the playing court touches the ball.
I would not reset the clock. And plan to raise this with the committee.
Is there another section in the FIBA 2017 rules that supports the no reset as shot clock hasnt started view?
The interpretation should be based on an article.
