2014-2015 NFHS BASKETBALL RULES REVISIONS
1. Arm sleeves, knee sleeves, lower leg sleeves and tights may be worn during the game; however, they must be black, white, beige or the predominant color of the uniform. All team members must wear the same solid color. Anything worn on the arm or leg is defined as a sleeve, except a knee brace.
The definition of an intentional foul was expanded to include excessive contact with an opponent while the ball is live or until the airborne shooter returns to the floor.
On a free throw attempt, players along the lane spaces now may enter the lane on the release of the ball by the free throw shooter. The free throw shooter and the players outside of the 3-point line must wait for the ball to hit the ring or backboard, or the free throw to end, before moving into the lane area.
2. The following acts constitute a foul when committed against a ball handler/dribbler:
a. Placing two hands on the player.
b. Placing an extended arm on the player.
c. Placing and keeping a hand on the player.
d. Contacting the player more than once with the same hand or alternating hands.
