Kurt, this was the one in question I asked about... after reading this you may want to inform the one that asked the question that yes this would be a violation because once the foot was raised they have front court status with the ball being held and the foot raised no longer has back court status. Had they started a dribble with the ball dribbled in the back court and never landing in the front court and lift the foot from back court placing it back down in back court then no violation. Her was the play in question.
A1 has the ball in the backcourt. A1 passes it to A2, who catches it in the air and lands straddling the half court line. A2 then pivots on their foot that’s in front court, the other foot is life’s off the floor but doesn’t touch the floor again until it comes back down in the back court again. Is this an over and back violation? I ruled no, due to the fact that all 3 points were not established in the front court. Click Here to read the Expert's answer.
