Basketball Quiz Start Page

NOTE:  Questions and rulings reflect 2002-2003 NFHS Rule Changes. 
indicated quizzes/items that have changes!  Quizes 39-41 are new this year!

Each year basketball officials spend much time reviewing rules to make sure that, when they get on the court, they bring knowledge to apply to the situations they encounter.

On this page are links to short (10 questions each) quizzes on the National Federation of High School Rules.  The questions come from information in a study guide released through the state athletic associations for the various officials associations.  See LHSAA organization officials page.

  • Each quiz is simple to take (just click on the "True" or "False" button, according to whether you think the ruling is completely true).
  • The quiz is scored (no one but you will know how you did--unless you tell!!!) by clicking "Grade Test" at the bottom of the form.
  • Correct answers and explanations are found through the "View Rules" button on each answer.  (The number references are to respective rules, sections, and articles in the NFHS Rules Book, NFHS Case Book, and NFHS Simplified/Illustrated Rules for 2001-2002 and 2002-2003.)
  • NFHS Rule book and NFHS Case Book and NFHS Simplified/Illustrated are available from National Federation of High Schools.

    Of course, these answers are my own.  They don't have any official standing or anything.  Soooooooo.........
