IAABO Play Book+
2.8.1 Unsporting Behavior
This video was developed by IAABO to show play summaries from the Rules Guide in an audio-visual format to help officials learn the rules by seeing them applied in a real game situation.
The viewer can "pause" or “rewind” the video on any page to allow the necessary time to understand information that is discussed. 
We hope that you will enjoy this educational tool and that it enhances your understanding of the rules.

Secondary Defender Plays
(IAABO Manual pg. 32)
The Lead is responsible for identifying potential secondary defenders in anticipation for block/charge plays. When a player drives to the basket, the Lead has primary coverage for plays in the lane area when it involves a secondary defender.
One of the main purposes for these specific guidelines of officiating primary and secondary defenders is to reduce the number of double whistles that occasionally happen during drives to the basket. In order to prevent conflicting rulings should a double whistle occur, officials are reminded to display the “stop-the-clock” signal, make eye contact with one another, and then the responsible official will display the type of foul signal.
