No stopping of the clock for timeouts in 1st half but in 2nd half the clock will stop.
A game lap ends:
• At the beginning of the first phase of game, when the ball is released by the referee.
• At the beginning of each game play, when the ball is at the player doing a throw-in.
In basketball, the ball is handled with the hand/hands and can be passed, thrown, touched, rolled and dribbled in any direction, in the limits of restrictions applied by the rules.
A player must not run with the ball in his hands, kick it or block the ball deliberately with any part of his leg or hit it with his fist. Anyhow, a contact or touch by accident of the ball with any part of the leg is not considered a foul.
Shooting a ball through the hoop, in action or free throw, is when the ball is held in the hands by a player and is released in the air towards the hoop.
An air ball is when the ball is directed with the hand while it’s already in the air towards the opponents’ hoop.
A slam dunk is when a ball is introduced by force in the opponents’ hoop by pushing it with the hand from up to down. Air ball and slam dunk are considered throws in action.

5.5 Throwing at the hoop
Throwing at the hoop starts when a player initiated a normal continuous movement, which proceeds to releasing the ball, at the appreciation of the referee representing the beginning of the player’s trial to score a ball through the hoop.
The action stops when the ball left the hands of the player and in the case of a throw done from a jump, when both player’s feet are back on the ground.
A player who tries to score, can have his arms held by an opponent and even if this prevents him from finishing his throw, it will be considered a legit throw at the basket in action. In this case it is not essential for the ball to leave the hands of the player.
It is considered scoring when a ball enters or goes through a hoop.
The ball is considered a score even if just a little part of it is in the interior of the rim and under the superior level of it.
A scoring ball is given to the team that attacked the opponents’ hoop, in which the ball entered, as followed:
• A scoring ball after a free throw counts for one (1) point.
• A scoring ball thrown from the two point line counts for two (2) points.
• After the ball touched the rim, as result of a free throw, it is allowed for a player to touch it and score it, this move counting for two (2) points.
If a player scores accidentally in his own team’s hoop, it is worth two (2) point and is registered as a score for the team captain of the opposing team.
If a player deliberately scores in his own team’s hoop it is considered a foul.
If a player makes the ball go through the hoop from down to up it is considered a foul.
The time board must show 0:00:3 or more for a player to assure the possession of the ball after a throw in of the ball in the game to be able to do a last free shot. If the time board indicates 0:00:2 or 0:00:1 the only way to score is through an air ball or slam dunk.

• Not delay the action of releasing the ball more than 5 seconds.
• Go on the court while holding the ball in his hands.
• Make the ball touch the outside of the court after he releases the ball from his hands.
• Touch the ball on the field before it was touched by another player.
• Score the ball directly from his position.
• Move from his assigned place from which he must perform the throw in, other than the place behind the line of the field after a scoring ball of his team, sideways in one or both directions going over 1 meter, before the throw-in. Anyhow, he is allowed to move directly beyond the line backwards, as far as the conditions allow him to do so.
During the throw-in the other player must not:
• Have any part of their body above the line delimiting the court, before the ball is thrown back in over the lines.

• At the beginning of each game lap, other than the starting one.
Alternative possession is a method of making the ball live, through the throwing out of the court, rather than through a duel.
The throw according to alternative possession:
• It starts when the ball is at the player who is performing the throw in.
• It’s over when:
– The ball touches or is legally touched by a player on the court.
– The team performing the throw in commits a foul in the throw in action.
– A live ball is caught between the panel and the rim during the throw in.

5.9 Procedure to applying the alternative possession
In all situations of a duel, team can alternate possession, for the throw in from the closest place of the duel.
The team that doesn’t obtain the control of a live ball after a duel, will receive the right for the first alternative possession.
The team with the right to the next alternative possession, at the end of a phase of the game, will begin the next phase with a throw in from the prolonged center line, opposite to the officials’ table, with the exception of free throw penalties and ball possessions still need to be administrated.
The team with the right to throw in according to the alternative possession, will be indicated by the alternative possession arrow directed towards the opponents’ basket. The direction of the arrow will be inversed immediately when the throw in according to the alternative possession is finished.
A foul committed by the team performing a throw in according to the alternative possession, causes the team to lose the right of the throw in. The arrow will be immediately inversed, pointing that the team that committed a foul has the right to the throw in according to the alternative possession at the next duel. The game will be continued by giving the ball to the opposing team so that they can throw in the ball.
