If you arrive late,

If you don't
bring all your players on time for the games, your opposing team
has the right to force a forfeit, giving them a free win. You
must have at least 4 players present to warrant a game and even
then, it's 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
team roster, that player will not be allowed to participate in
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.

Team fouls reset from the 1st half to the 2nd
half. Team fouls carry over however, from the 2nd half to any
Personal fouls do not reset, and will carry
over into the 2nd half.
When a team
commits a total of 6 team 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 team 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
The exception to this is if it's an offensive
foul or 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.
If a technical foul is issued, it is two free
throws for the opposing team as well as possession of the ball.
The Clock will only stop for the following instances:
3) Free Throw

of the second half of all games, for all calls/fouls/dead
balls/out of bounds plays.
Other than those instances, the clock will be continuously
table is authorized to take a table time-out to correct an error
by the refs who misunderstood or did not get right one of the
rules for this event. Such as if a player has fouled out and the
refs didn't hear it, and therefore the clock will need to be
reset and/or any points that fouled out player scored removed.
If the ref does
not concur, the tournament administrator can be called over to
clarify and back up the scoring table.
Refs - Will be officiating the
entire event. So please be aware of the appropriate
basketball rules such as 3 second violations, back court, etc,
All calls are FINAL.
****The only instance in which a referee's call isn't final is
if there is a scoring table issue, see the rule directly above
Cause for Ejection/Removal from the 2016 BSC:
unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated from players,
coaches or fans. If in the Event Administrators’ opinion, any
player, coach or fan who engages in any evidence of harassment,
intimidation, taunting, arguing, physical altercation or
violence, offensive words, destruction of property or any
criminal activity that could compromise or affect the
administration, integrity, security, fairness, or proper conduct
of the IPF Sports Tournament, the IPF Administrator has sole
discretion and reserves the right to eject or ban any individual
who disrupts any part of the Event.
When a team forfeits a
game, the team they were scheduled to play gets an automatic
win. If playoff seeding comes into play a forfeited game will
give a zero point total.
The teams with the best records will advance.
If 2 teams have the same record at the end of the regular
season, the team that defeated the other team in the regular
season will advance.
3. If the two teams
have the same record and never played each
other in the regular season, total points scored will be tallied
up for the regular season, for both teams. The team with
the higher number will advance. Point differential is
calculated by the total points scored, per team, per game.
Now if 2 teams never played each other in the regular
season, have the same record, AND have the same point
differential. They will play a mandatory 8 minute tie
breaker game, with one allotted 30 second timeout per team.
If there are 3+ teams with the same record & they did
not all play each other, but beat one of the other 3 teams so the head to head
doesn't apply across the board, the point
differential will be tallied and the top teams will advance. If
by some chance two of these teams have the same point
differential then a mandatory 8 minute tie breaker game will be
played. This rule
supersedes rules #1-#4.
Regular Season Overtime Rules:
If at the end of a game, there is
a tie, there will be a jump ball and 2 minutes of Overtime.
