Ever wondered how much you know about the rules of basketball? Well, this is your chance to find out.
FIBA are always updating the rules to be more in line with the modern game. Players, coaches and referees need to keep up to speed with these changes and make sure that they know how to apply them correctly.
Each week, we will pose a number of your questions on a Friday and, on the following Wednesday, the answers will be published in the post with an explanation. Then you can see how well you really know the rules!
Do you have any questions that you have always wanted to know? Or, did something happen in a game and you didn’t get the chance to ask the referee?
Once we have a few questions or scenarios, we will present another post detailing the chosen one. You can then try your hand at explaining the right call in the comments section and check back on Wednesday to see whether or not you were right.
There are of course a few rules;
- All questions should be constructive – no criticism/slander
- Please remember that subjective questions can’t be answered – try to keep the questions rules orientated.
