o*ver and back vi*o*la*tion
1. When an offensive player who has possession of the ball crosses over the half-court line (with both feet) into their opponent’s court, then steps back over the half-court line back into their half of the court. This is a violation in basketball and results in a turnover.
A player must have possession or touch the ball when they cross back into their backcourt to be called for over-and-back. A player can cross back over the half-court line, without possession of the ball, and not be called for over-and-back.
1. Wade brings the ball up court, but while evading the defender, his foot touches the half-court line and gets charged with over-and-back.
