For some of you it might be a little late, but I’m guessing lots of refs are still preparing for their ruletest. FIBA has issued the new OBRI. Here it is!
As coach Nick from Bball Breakdown would say: ‘there you have it sportsfans.’ We will be working with a Headcoach challenge from now on. But don’t get your hopes up too high, it won’t be in all leagues.
Still interesting to check out the new rule.

Can you explain to me what is a dribble?? And when a dribble is legal and when not?? It’s good to go back to basics and understand how things are phrased in the OBRI. Referee University posted a great video in which they explained the rule with examples and articles from the OBRI.

The video we found and embedded in this article might be a dangerous one. The rules of our sport are clear so it’s just a matter of observing what happens right? Well. Guess again. Nobody comes to the gym to hear a bunch of zebra’s blow their instruments more often than the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. You have to be smart in what to call, and consistent. We strongly and firmly believe that covering your violations will make life much easier on you and your crew. That is nót an invitation to be triggerhappy and shoot on everything that looks like a violation. Check the video and take some time to contemplate on how you call your violations and fouls.

Off course: preseason ruletests are pretty far away. It’s only April and all our minds are probably still subconsciously awaiting playoff nominations, but you can never know a rule too good. Therefor a little question: Can you tell us the difference between goaltending and interference from the top of your mind? If not, check this video. Wyatt Anders, thanks for notifying us!

Recently we showed a clip on our instagrampage with the question: is this a personal foul in the act of shooting yes or no. The response was huge.

As you might have noticed last seasons: U fouls have changed a bit. Whether you’re a player getting more calls (or getting called more 😉 ) or a ref calling more U fouls, it’s always a good idea to get back to the rules once in a while, and check some videos. So here’s to article 37! Lees verder “Refresh: U fouls!”
Clips are not always as clear as they seem. The clip down below shows a miraculous threepointshot going in. But are we going to count it for three?? Most of the people responding to the clip on our instagram said yes. But… Lees verder “Trickshot, what do you call?”
On our instagramaccount we had a nice clip this week that caused quite some controversy. Check down below for the clip we’re talking about and ask yourself: Would you have called a backcourt violations? Lees verder “Preseason 2019-2020: Let’s go over the rules once again”
