IAABO Play Book+
VPB 3.3.4+ Illegal substitution
(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.

Delay/Spread Offense Coverage (Co2)
(IAABO Manual pg. 44 Diagram)
It is a rare occurrence, but officials need to know how to position-adjust to get proper angles when the offense employs a “spread” offense.  This strategy is generally employed when the offensive team wants to maintain possession while running time off the clock.  This often leads to the defense needing to foul to stop the clock and have a chance to gain possession of the ball.  

In a Crew of 2, this is especially challenging and both officials should be prepared to get creative and make position-adjustments that ensure they are covering the action properly.  The Lead may work wide toward the sideline and even move up the sideline if necessary to cover the players on their side of the basketline.  The Trail may be wide toward the sideline and nearer the division line, and may move onto the court (even into the backcourt) when necessary to get an open angle between offensive and defensive players.  If the ball penetrates toward the lane, the Lead should position-adjust back to the end line. The Trail should be prepared to quickly “wrap back” toward the sideline and close down toward the end line as the play develops.  This concept should be discussed in the pregame conference to ensure the crew is ready if this situation were to arise during the game.
