Tournament Rules and Regulations
Play will consist of two halves, each of which is 16 minutes stopped time. (For 10-under to 13-under, each half is 14 minutes stopped time except for playoff games.)
Halftime will be three minutes.
If necessary, overtime will be two minutes. If the game is still tied after two two-minute overtime periods, the teams will play without a clock, first to score three points wins.
Teams get two full timeouts (60 seconds in length) and one 30-second timeout per game. For each overtime session, each team will get an additional 30-second timeout.
A player will be disqualified from the game after five fouls.
Seven team fouls in a half will lead to a one-and-one penalty, while ten fouls will be a two-shot penalty.
Mercy rule: if the scoring margin is 20 or more points with less than four minutes to play, play will continue as running time except during a timeout.
Any player or coach who is ejected from a game during the tournament is automatically suspended for his team’s next game. If a player or coach is ejected from a second game, he is automatically suspended for the remainder of the tournament. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Only two coaches (head coach and one assistant) are allowed on the bench for each game and are allowed to get in for free. There is a roster limit of 12 players.
Forfeits/tardiness: A game will be a forfeit if a team is more than 15 minutes late. If a team arrives within 15 minutes of the tip, the first half will be played with eight minutes and 10 points will be awarded to the team that arrived on time.
Each team is responsible for either a timer or a scorekeeper at each game.
Teams must bring their own practice balls. The game ball is the responsibility of the head referee.
Roster rule: a player’s age is based on his age as of September 1, 2012.
Unless otherwise stated, college rules apply.
First tie-breaker is head-to-head result
Second tie-breaker is point differential – note that the maximum point differential for a team is 15 points. Forfeits are scored +15 for the winning team.
Third tie-breaker is points allowed – the team allowing the fewest points will advance so long as they did not forfeit along the way.
