Not a Backcourt Violation, ball is tapped, no possession

This is an example of a play that WOULD NOT be considered a backcourt violation. During a rebounding situation, a player may tap the ball away from a congested area in an attempt to get the ball to a spot where control may be secured. There is no control of the ball when it is tapped in this manner, and therfore no backcourt violation should be assessed. On this play, the player in the dark uniform taps the ball, and since there was no control on the play, this would be deemed a legal play, and NOT a backcourt violation.
