OK guys - here's 10 true or false questions based on standard high school rules as written by the National Federation of State High School Associations - the rules used by every public and private high school in the U.S. Just for fun, post your answers and, in a few days, I'll post the correct ones. Oh yeah - I've been a referee for over 20 years and this is a quiz we give new coaches in the local kids rec league in my city.
RULES TEST – ANSWER TRUE OR FALSE TO EACH QUESTION

1) ON AN INBOUND PLAY, IF THE INBOUNDER MOVES MORE THAN THREE FEET BACKWARDS BEFORE INBOUNDING, IT’S A VIOLATION
2) A PLAYER CANNOT BEGIN A LEGAL DRIBBLE BY PUSHING THE BALL TO THE FLOOR WITH BOTH HANDS
3) PLAYERS MAY PLAY WITH EARRINGS AS LONG AS THEY ARE COVERED TIGHTLY WITH MASKING TAPE
4) WHEN INBOUNDING IN THE FRONT COURT, IT IS A VIOLATION TO INBOUND THE BALL TO A PLAYER IN THE BACK COURT
5) IF A PLAYER DIVES FOR A LOOSE BALL, GRABS THE BALL AND CONTINUES SLIDING, IT IS A TRAVELING VIOLATION
6) IF AN INBOUNDER IS HOLDING THE BALL OUT OF BOUNDS AND A DEFENDER REACHES ACROSS THE LINE AND PUTS BOTH HANDS ON THE BALL, IT IS A HELD BALL
7) IF A PLAYER SHOOTS AN AIR BALL, THAT PLAYER CANNOT BE THE FIRST TO TOUCH THE BALL BEFORE IT COMES DOWN AND HITS THE FLOOR
8) IF A PLAYER IS HOLDING THE BALL AND A DEFENDER SLAPS THE BALL HANDLERS HAND CAUSING THE BALL TO BECOME LOOSE, IT IS A PERSONAL FOUL
9) IF A PLAYER REACHES OVER ANOTHER PLAYER’S BACK TO GRAB THE BALL, IT IS A PERSONAL FOUL
10) IF A PLAYER IS DRIBBLING AND BOUNCES THE BALL OFF THEIR FOOT, THEY CANNOT RUN AND RECOVER THE LOOSE BALL

Well, I thought there might be more response, but it is what it is. Here's the answers: they're all false!

1) inbounders have three feet each way sideways from the designated spot but may move backwards all the way to the wall regardless of how far that might be

2) players may begin their first (and only their first) dribble with two hands

3) there are two exceptions to the "no jewelry" rule but taping over earrings isn't one of them

4) even with the new rule change this year regarding team control during a throw-in, players may always inbound directly into the backcourt from the frontcourt

5) if the act of diving for a loose ball causes a player to slide or roll due to the momentum of diving, there is no violation unless they do it after they have stopped

6) it's a technical foul against the player and also a delay of game warning on the team

7) once a legitimate shot attempt is taken, there is no longer team control and any player on the court, including the one who took the shot, may be first to touch the ball

8) the old saying "the hand is part of the ball" is true - hitting the hand while it's on the ball is the same as hitting the ball - no foul

9) there is no such foul as "over the back" despite what you hear on television - if there's no contact, there's no foul - same for a "reach"

10) bouncing the ball off their foot makes them lose player control and they can then recover the ball - however they cannot dribble again

As I said, these are high school rules. College rules may be different and NBA rules definitely are different in some cases.
