Basketball FIBA Rule Changes

To help visualize what these mean you can also refer to these provided videos that can be found here: http://www.basketref.com/en/index.php/?option=com_content&view=article&id=%207

 

1.        Travelling – The main change here is if a player is moving when dribbling or moving when receiving the ball they can take two steps to come to a stop or if they start a dribble they have to release the ball before the 2 nd step comes to the ground.  If a player is holding the ball while standing still and then pivots or starts a dribble the rules have not changed. 

FIBA Summary of Rule Changes • While moving and having one foot on the floor while catching the ball or ending a dribble the next foot or feet to touch the floor is „Step 1“ and will become the pivot foot. 

  
2.        Unsportsmanlike foul - • An unnecessary contact caused by the defensive player in order to stop the progress of the offensive team in transition. This applies until the offensive player begins his act of shooting.  The break away foul rule (aka clear path) is still in the rules as well. 

  
3.        Disqualification change - A player shall be disqualified for the remainder of the game when charged with 1 technical and 1 unsportsmanlike foul.
