Section I—Scoring

d. A field goal accidentally scored in an opponent’s basket shall be added to the opponent’s score, credited to the opposing player nearest the player whose actions caused the ball to enter the basket.


This is one rule that some of us will administer incorrectly.  Most of us will probably credit the 2 point score to the player that accidentally tipped it into his/her opponent's basket.  This will cause irregularities in the scoring when they do not match up.  The score should be credited to the player who was nearest to the player that scored.

Crew Chief stuff!!
