The new referee regulations in the EuroLeague and the changes compared to the previous year

Published

on

Two days before the start of the new season, EuroLeague Basketball announced changes to some refereeing rules. The unsportsmanlike foul, the coach’s challenge and the “act of violence”.

EuroLeague Basketball is feverishly preparing for the start of the new season, with teams completing their final practice sessions before entering the battle for a place in the Final Four. However, apart from the regular questions and preparation, you should understand the changes that have occurred in some official regulations of EuroLeague Basketball.

The organization announced these changes on Tuesday, October 4th.

Specifically from this year’s season:

– The foul committed before the ball is committed (on a throw-in) in the last two minutes of regulation time and overtime no longer results in two shots and a new possession, but in one shot. It is therefore not an unsportsmanlike foul that could result in disqualification from the action – that is, if it is associated with a technical penalty or an unsportsmanlike foul in play. This also applies to FIBA.

– In the last two minutes of regulation time or overtime, after a time-out after a goal or foul, the coach can decide where the throw-in will be taken. If he chooses to do so on the attacking side, he also has the right to choose whether to throw in from the nine-metre line opposite the bench or in front of them (ie from the left or right side of the floor). Until last year, the throw-in was only from the nine-meter line opposite the benches.

– The referees have the right to stop the game immediately to see on Instant Replay if there is an “act of violence” or a possible such case between players playing or sitting on the benches. This is a rule essentially the same as FIBA’s and implemented at the 2021-22 Basket League Finals starring Mustafa Fal and Howard Sand Ross.

– Coaches can use the “Challenge” for any of the reasons that give them this right, without restrictions and conditions from the moment of the game. Recall that last year, when the “challenge” rule was introduced by the coaches, there were three cases when it was only possible in the last two minutes of the game. However, the opportunity for only one (1) use of the “Challenge” during the game remains.

In detail, all the cases in which a coach can make use of the “challenge” of the regulation:

  1. Game Clock: Refers to the time remaining until the end of the game. That is, if the timer gets stuck or seconds are lost.
  2. Shot Clock: The 24 second timer, the time remaining until an attack is completed. That is, if the timer gets stuck or seconds are lost.
  3. Basket 24s: Explains if the basket was scored in time when an attack is completed.
  4. Foul 24s: Explains if a foul was called in time before a team’s 24 second offense was completed.
  5. Cart Value: How much a cart is worth. That is, if a successful shot scores 1 (one), 2 (two), or 3 (three) points
  6. Number of Free Throws: The number of throws a player is allowed to make after a foul is won or a technical or unsportsmanlike foul is called.
  7. Basket DF/OF: Explains if there was a foul on the ball before a player fired a shot, either by a defender or an attacker. If the foul is called before the player begins his shot attempt, the basket does not count.
  8. Foul Review: The VIDEO review of a foul called to upgrade it from a simple foul to an unsportsmanlike foul or to downgrade it from an unsportsmanlike foul to a simple foul.
  9. Combat / Physical Dispute: Used when there is a fight or intense confrontation between players to decide if punishment is necessary.
  10. Free throw taker: The player who takes free throws.
  11. Out: To determine if the ball went out (end line or touchline), but also if it is a contentious phase, which player put the ball out of play.
  12. Goal Tracking: To determine if there has been an infraction. That is, when a player—attacking or defending—either disrupts the ball’s trajectory or incorrectly moves it off the edge.
  13. Defensive Semi-Circle: To determine if a player positioned himself inside or outside of the semi-circle on the stick when attempting to pull an offensive foul. If it is inside the semi-circle, the foul is considered defensive, outside the semi-circle it is offensive.
  14. Basket EOQ: Check the VIDEO to see if a shot was taken in or out of time at the end of a period.
  15. Foul EOQ: Watch the VIDEO to determine if a foul was in or out of time at the end of a period.

Giannis autographed his shoes and gave them to his son, Nick Calathes

A beautiful moment for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who signed his shoes and gave them to his son Nick Calathes after the Bucks vs. Magic game, with the Fenerbahce guard thanking him via Instagram.

The Bucks beat the Magic 109-102 in Orlando, with Giannis Antetokounmpo stopping at 34 points. But it was something he did after the fight that had its own meaning.

When the game was over, the Bucks star met up with his son Nick Calathes (who lives in the greater Florida area) and gave him his shoes and even took a picture with Thanasis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks even caught the scene on camera – unaware of the ins and outs of the moment – and Nick Calathes later thanked the Antetokounmpo brothers by uploading a photo of his son with them and writing:I love you! Thank you for making my son the happiest kid!”

Nikola Vujicic becomes the 11th EuroLeague legend

One of the outstanding figures in European basketball, Nikola Vujicic becomes the 11th EuroLeague legend. The Croatian center will be honored before the game Maccabi – Valencia (December 8th, 9:05 p.m.) on the 12th day of the competition.

He’s on the world’s radar, now he’s officially becoming a EuroLeague legend. The reason for Nikola Vučić, who has won two cups (2004 and 2005) with Maccabi Tel Aviv and been named a member of the top five of Europe’s leading club competition five times.

The experienced center of Villeurbanne, Maccabi, Olympiakos and Efes, who made 192 appearances in 11 seasons, averaging 12.7 points (56% 2 points, 34.5% 3 points, 69.5% shots), 5.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists is one of the most distinctive personalities in the history of the EuroLeague and will be honored accordingly on December 8th before the start of the national team’s game on matchday 12 against Valencia (08/12, 21:05).

This makes Vujicic the eleventh EuroLeague legend after Theodoris Papaloukas, Juan Carlos Navarro, Ramunas Siskauskas, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Dimitris Diamantidis, Mirsad Turksan, Felipe Reyes, Vasilis Spanoulis, Dusan Ivkovic and Simon Mizrahi.

It is worth noting that although more than 10 years have passed since the Croatian center last played in the EuroLeague, he is still one of the two players in the history of the competition with 2,000+ points, 1,000+ rebounds and 500+ assists. The other person who has achieved something similar is Nick Calathes. The two also share another standout feat as they are the only ones to record a triple-double.
