Two-Point/Three-Point Field Goal

Since the 2008-09 season, referees have reviewed all situations in which officials are not reasonably certain whether a successful field goal was scored correctly as a 2-point or 3-point field goal or, in the case of a called shooting foul, whether the player was attempting a 2-point or 3-point field goal.

In the case of a possible foul, the review takes place immediately before the free-throw attempts so referees know how many shots to award.

Reviewable Matters:

  1. Made field goal was scored correctly as a 2pt FG or 3pt FG
  2. A player fouled was attempting a 2pt FGA or 3pt FGA
  3. Shooter committed a boundary line violation immediately prior to the release of the shot
  4. 24-second violation occurred prior to the ball being released or foul occurring

Notes:

  1. On a made basket Replay Review will be conducted according to the following:
    1. In the first three periods: review at next timeout or period break
    2. In 4th period prior to second (mandatory) timeout: review at next timeout
    3. In 4th period after second timeout and all overtime periods: review at next clock stoppage
  2. Upon review of the made basket, a point may be added or deducted from the team’s score
  3. On a foul call, to determine the correct number of free throws to be attempted, Replay Review will be conducted immediately
  4. Upon review of the foul, the correct number of free throws to be attempted is determined
