What Is The Definition Of Rebound?

What Is A Rebound In Basketball?

1. A rebound occurs in basketball when a player gains possession of the basketball after a missed field goal, three-point field goal, or free throw attempt. The basketball usually hits off the rim or the backboard before the player gains possession of the ball and is credited with the rebound. However, a player will not be given credit for a rebound after gaining possession of the ball after a blocked shot. There are only two different kinds of rebounds in basketball and they’re called offensive rebounds and defensive rebounds.

Who Gets Credit For A Defensive Rebound In Basketball?

When the defense gains possession of the basketball after a missed field goal attempt, the defensive player who controls the ball is given credit for the rebound. If two members of the defense share in the rebound effort, they are marked with a half-rebound on the stats sheet. 

Players who position themselves directly in front of their opponent and close to the basket typically get the most defensive rebounds.  

Who Holds The Record For The Most Rebounds In Basketball?

What Is A Rebound Foul In Basketball?

A rebound foul is when an offensive or defensive player tries to get possession of the ball after a field goal attempt and commits a foul in the process. A common type of rebound foul is the loose ball foul, which occurs when the opponent is pushed out of the way during an attempt to gain possession of a loose ball. 

What Does It Mean To Go “Over The Back” In Basketball?

Going “over the back” in basketball means that a taller player is reaching higher than a shorter player to attempt to gain possession of the ball. This reference is typically made during the act of rebounding a ball after a field goal attempt. 

Going “over the back” is not a foul unless illegal contact is made, such as pushing, holding, or checking. It does, however, trigger emotion out of coaches, players, fans, and analysts.
