I’ve always been in favor of not guarding the ball on the inbounds play, but I’d also recommend that you don’t turn your back if you’re the closest defender. Spiffy video following the jump of the last play of the Concordia vs. College of Idaho women’s game, when, with 0.7 seconds remaining in a tie game, Concordia’s Danielle Clauson bounced an inbounds pass off of a defender’s back and sank a short jumper to win it.
My question: Does the clock start when the ball contacts the Idaho player, or when Clauson catches it? If it’s the former, does she technically have time to get off the shot with less than a second remaining?
