IAABO Play Book+
VPB 5.2.1C(b) 2-point or 3-point Goal
(This clip does not contain audio)
This video was developed by IAABO to show common plays in a visual format and help officials learn the rules by seeing them applied. 
You, the viewer, can decide how to utilize the video to gain a better understanding of the rules and concepts.

For individuals who want to understand the play situation, the clip contains a title page, casebook page, and a "Key Concepts" page that outlines each play situation and the pertinent rules that apply.
Each of these pages will stay on the screen for 3 seconds.  The viewer can "pause" the video on any of these pages to allow the necessary time to read the information.   

If the viewer wishes to go directly to the video clip, simply move the cursor to the nine-second mark of the clip and watch the play.  Can you determine the correct ruling?
The clip will play a second time.  This time, the clip will provide a “Play Analysis” and outline the correct ruling and key concepts that apply.      

We hope that you will enjoy this educational tool, and it enhances your understanding of the rules.
To see more plays like this, log onto the “Members Area” on the IAABO website at https://www.iaabo.org. You will have access to the entire Video Playbook database. 

Press Coverage (Co2)
(IAABO Manual pg. 49-50 Diagram)
The new Lead should remain and read to assist the new Trail on press coverage. The Lead should obtain an initial starting position a step or two nearer his/her end line than the deepest player, keeping all players boxed in.  The Lead’s position will be dictated by position of the players. The Lead will need to position-adjust in order to have an open look at competitive match-ups on both sides of the court while the ball is in the backcourt.

The Lead is also responsible for out-of-bounds plays on the sideline opposite the Trail and should be ready to cover a long pass into the frontcourt. When covering passes, they should stay with the ball.

In most cases, the Trail is responsible for the initial primary matchup after the throw-in. The Trail should remain behind the play to be able to observe any potential screens or defensive traps. They may need to move toward the basketline in order to get an open look on matchups when the ball is on the Lead’s side of the court. The Trail is responsible for the 10-second backcourt count, and during any passing activity should stay with the passer.
