This is an example of double dribble violation committed by an offensive player upon losing control of the ball. A player who fumbles the ball may always recover the ball, but he IS NOT permitted to dribble if he has moved his pivot foot in order to retrieve the ball. On this play, the offensive player fumbles the ball into the air as he jumps to shoot, and he then recovers the ball. He then dribbles the ball upon recovery. This is an illegal act, and it is an violation, and possession would be awarded to the opposing team.
