Art. 14 CONTROL OF THE BALL
14.1.1 Team control starts when a player of that team is in control of a live ball by holding or dribbling it or has a live ball at his disposal.
14.1.2 Team control continues when:
* A player of that team is in control of a live ball.
* The ball is being passed between team-mates.
14.1.3 Team control ends when:
* An opponent gains control.
* The ball becomes dead.
* The ball has left the player's hand(s) on a shot for a field goal or for a free throw.
Art. 30 BALL RETURNED TO THE BACKCOURT
30.1.2 The ball has been illegally returned to the backcourt when a player of the team in control of the live ball is the last to touch the ball in his frontcourt, after which that player or a team-mate is the first to touch the ball in the backcourt.
This restriction applies to all situations in a team's frontcourt, including throw-ins.
However, it does not apply to a player who jumps from his frontcourt, establishes NEW TEAM CONTROL WHILE STILL AIRBORNE and then lands in his team's backcourt.
"Merely touching, or tappong the ball or deflecting a pass by an opponent does not mean the end of the team control. In such situations team control ends only at the moment when the opponent gains control, in other words, he holds or dribbles the ball". (Basketball Everyone. Zsolt HARTYÃNI. Published by FIBA. 1998)
