Out-of-Bounds Plays

Referees may review any out-of-bounds play that occurs in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter and last two minutes of overtime when they are not reasonably certain as to which player caused the ball to go out-of-bounds.

Officials may conduct an instant replay review whenever they are not reasonably certain as to which team should be awarded possession after a ball becomes out of bounds or whether an out of bounds in fact occurred during the last two minutes of regulation and the last two minutes of overtime period(s). ┬áPreviously, officials could only use replay if they weren’t reasonably certain as to which of two players on opposing teams caused the ball to become out of bounds.

Reviewble Matters:

  1. Identify which team should be awarded possession
  2. Adjust game clock as necessary

Notes:

  1. Video review will take place ONLY in the last two minutes of the fourth period and the last two minutes of all overtime periods
  2. Review must take place prior to the subsequent in-bounding of the ball
  3. Officials must first make a call on the floor (favoring one team or jump ball) and then review video
  4. Prior to 2014-15, reviews permitted during the entire overtime period(s)
