Subject: Screens

Every official who has ever called a basketball game has heard from every direction, “that’s a moving screen!”  Until illegal contact-please review Rule 4-40-occurs, by the screener or the player being screened in his or her visual field displacing a legal screener, there can be moving screens anywhere on the court. The video that follows very nicely shows both illegal screens(the signal is a team control foul and blocking)and screened players displacing legal screeners-the signal is a pushing foul in high school play.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.
