Rule 6: Putting Ball in Play - Live/Dead Ball - Jump Balls

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive



Section V—Jump Balls in Center Circle

a. The ball shall be put into play in the center circle by a jump ball between any two opponents:

(1) At the start of the game

(2) At the start of each overtime period

(3) A double free-throw violation

(4) Double foul during a loose ball

(5) The ball becomes dead when neither team is in control and no field goal infraction is involved

(6) The ball comes to rest on the basket flange or becomes lodged between the basket ring and the backboard

(7) A double foul occurs as a result of a difference in opinion between officials

(8) A suspension of play occurs during a loose ball

(9) A fighting foul occurs during a loose ball

(10) The officials are in doubt as to which team last touched the ball before going out of bounds and the players cannot be identified.

b. In all cases above, the jump ball shall be between any two opponents in the game at that time. If injury, ejection, or disqualification makes it necessary for any player to be replaced, his substitute may not participate in the jump ball.



This is a good rule to understand for jump ball situations that occur at the center circle.  Otherwise, all other jump balls will take place at the nearest circle.
