—————————————-

BOYS GymRat LIVE will be played by NIKE EYBL rules

  1. (4) 9-minute quarters
  2. 24-second shot clock (17U Division only)
  3. Each team is allowed two (2) thirty second time-outs per HALF.
  4. Each team is allowed four (4) full time-outs per GAME.
  5. Illegal defense prohibition
    • The EYBL “illegal defense” rule will be centered around the “3 seconds rule.” The illegal defense call will be assessed when a member of the defending team spends more than three seconds in the free throw lane (“in the paint”) while not actively guarding an opponent. To be considered actively guarding, a defender must be within arm’s length of an opponent and in a guarding position. A three-second count is suspended if:
      • A player is in the act of shooting
      • There is a loss of team control
      • The defender is actively guarding an opponent
      • The defender clears the painted area
      • It is imminent the defender will become legal
    • In addition, a player guarding an opponent with the ball may be in the paint without actively guarding the opponent.
    • The team committing a defensive three-second violation is assessed a technical foul. The offense receives one free throw and retains possession of the ball.
    • To further clarify, several NBA teams play some version of a zone, but they are all predicated on “zoning with man to man principles.” Zones will be allowed with man-to-man principles with each defender within arm’s length of an opponent. This will be an important emphasis and distinction this season as teams will have to guard. A defender will still be allowed to sag off of inadequate shooters, but must be in active defensive position and can’t remain in the lane more than three seconds.
