FIBA Rules will be used with the following modifications:
- Two 27 minutes halves; with a 3 minute half-time
- Each half will be straight running time; the clock will be stopped for free throws, time-outs and the final 2 minutes of the game.
- Shot Clock: The 30 second shot clock is in effect for the final two minutes of the game. For any foul called in the last two minutes of the game, the team being awarded the ball will receive a new 30 seconds on the shot clock.
- Time-outs: Each team is permitted 2 time-outs. Only 1 time-out per half. Time-outs can not be carried over. Only the team in control of the ball can ask for a time-out during a live ball.
- Overtime: There are no overtime periods in regular season play. During playoffs only, if an overtime period is necessary, it will be 2 minutes in length with the same rules applied as the last 2 minutes of the second half.
- Substitutions can be made after any whistle and by the team who has been scored upon. b., if the team that has been scored upon requests a substitution, the opposing team may be granted substitutions as well.
- Fouls: A player fouls out on the 6th
- Team foul: A team foul penalty will take effect on the 7th team foul in each half; the penalty will be 1 free throw (i.e., not one and a bonus; not 2 free throws).
- Free Throws: All made free throws have a value of 2 points.
- Player “A” is fouled on a try for basket: awarded 1 free throw
- A’s try for basket is successful = 2 points
- A5’s try for basket is not successful = 0 points
- Player “B” is fouled on a 3 point try for basket:
- If “B”s try is successful = 3 points AND award 1 free throw (possible to get 5 points!)
- If “B”s try is not successful = 0 points, award 2 free throws (possible to get 4 points!)
Note: in the final 2 minutes of the game the clock will be stopped after any whistle and after any basket is scored
Win = 2 points; Loss = 0 points; Tie/Draw = 1
