has the right to force a forfeit, giving them a free win.
It is up to the team with all their players in attendance, if any
adjustments are warranted such as allowing the short handed team
to pick up a few players. The team that brought all their
players is in the lead position here.
No Ringer Policy:
As of 2008, the
No-Ringer policy has been finalized and there are no if, ands,
or buts about it. If a player is brought that is not on a

the BSC. If a player is a blatant ringer, he will not be
allowed to play. End of discussion. Teams have to go
through a lot to abide by the tournament rules, and we won't
allow disruption. Appreciate your cooperation.

Each personal foul counts towards a team foul.
When a team commits a total of 6 teams fouls in a half,
the opposition shoots a free throw. (Single Bonus). If the free
throw is made, another one is awarded. If the free throw is
missed, play resumes as normal. Once a team reaches 8 total
teams fouls in a half, all fouls committed from that point
forward during the remainder of the game result in two free
throws being awarded to the opposition. (Double Bonus)
The exception to this is if an offensive foul or a shooting
foul. If an offensive foul is committed, there is only a change
of possession (no free-throws).
If a shooting foul is committed (player fouled in the act of
shooting), 2 free-throws are automatically awarded no matter how
many team fouls exist.
Free throws will be applied during both the
regular and post-seasons.
