c)       All sleeves/tights shall be the same color.

d)      All sleeves/tights shall meet the logo requirements in 3.6.

4-19-3d   d. Excessive and/or unnecessary contact with an opponent while the ball is live or until an airborne shooter returns to the floor.

9-1-4    The restrictions in 9-1-3b through g apply until the ball is released by the free thrower.
