Several rule changes are coming for the high school basketball 2014-15 season, including when players can go get a rebound on a free throw attempt.

The National Federation of State High School Associations Basketball Rules Committee recommended and the NFHS board of directors approved these changes….

Rule 3-5-3  Arm sleeves, knee sleeves, lower leg sleeves and tights are permissible:

a)      Anything worn on the arm and/or leg is a sleeve, except a knee brace, and shall meet the color restrictions.

b)      The sleeves/tights shall be beige, black, white or the predominant color of the uniform and the same color sleeve/tights shall be worn by teammates.

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.

10-6-12  New Article   The following acts constitute a foul when committed against a ball handler/dribbler:

1)      placing two hands on the player.

2)      placing an extended armbar on the player.

3)      placing and keeping a hand on the player.

4)      contacting the player more than once with the same hand or alternating hands.
