    If anyone is interested in becoming a certified FIBA basketball official, and thus becoming eligible to work international basketball, there are 2 upcoming certification clinics you might be interested in attending.  They are April 9-12 in the Cayman Islands and April 8-11 in Belize City, Belize. 

    Participants are responsible for travel, lodging and meals and will be expected to pass a written rules test, physical test and an English test.  If you want additional information, please contact Ellis Dawson at USA Basketball at

    I recently read John Feinstein's new book, Where Nobody Knows Your Name: Life in the Minor Leagues of Baseball.  It was terrific!

    When you have a chance, you might want to view VB #16 as it is a review of several situations and plays from the 13-14 season.  It was prepared as a "pre-post season" video bulletin to help you get ready for post season assignments.

    The answers to the 2 YMTC plays in VB#15 are:

    Play 1  It is NOT a foul in the act of shooting.

    Play 2  It IS goaltending.

    All the best for the balance of this season.

    Below, please find the answers to Video Bulletin - 7, You Make the Call Video Plays:
    1. Travel.
    2. Incidental Contact (4-21-2 p. 51)
    3. PC Foul.  Legal defender moving legally to maintain when illegally contacted.
    4. PC Foul.  Upward motion irrelevant if player is not airborne.
    5. No call.  Trailing defender is right under basket (look where he catches ball).  Err on side of safety + not many of you reading this, have ever dunked and had to hang on the rim by your fingers to slow down.
    6. PC Foul.  2nd and 3rd bumps dislodge a legal defender.

    The first play under the heading, Flagrant Fouls, should have said, … this foul was a flagrant 2 foul as the contact was excessive, severe/and or extreme.  Additionally, the player with the ball is looking at the defender and swings his elbow at his opponent’s face to “clear space."

    I apologize for any confusion this play might have caused and we will re-edit the video and re-post it on Monday.
