Clear-Path-To-The Basket-Foul

Referees may review situations where they are not reasonably certain whether a foul that was called met all of the criteria of a clear-path-to-the-basket foul.

Reviewable Matters:

  1. Ball is ahead of the tip of the circle in the backcourt
  2. No defender is ahead of the offensive player with the transition scoring opportunity
  3. Player with the transition scoring opportunity is in control of the ball (or a pass has been thrown to him)
  4. The foul deprives his team of an opportunity to score


  1. Officials must first make a foul call on the floor
  2. Prior to 2014-15, only a clear path foul call was reviewable
