After a shot for a goal by A1, the ball is in the air when it is touched in its upward flight by B2 ( or A2 ). In its downward flight to the basket the ball is touched by B3 ( or by A3 ).

Which is the game rule and the statistical register IN EACH CASE ?


Basketball Rule Fundamental=
If, after a field goal attempt, a player touches the ball while it is in its upward flight , all restrictions related to goal tending and interference shall apply .

Basketball  (external link) Game Rule=
The contact of B2 ( or A2 ) with the ball in its upward flight is legal and does not change the status of a shot for a goal .
However, the subsequent contact with the ball in its downward flight by A3 or B3 is a violation .

eBA Basketball Statistics Tracking:
In the case of B3, two or three points are awarded to team A, without any record against B3 - this possession ends with the basket.

In the case of A3's violation, the ball is awarded to team B for a throw-in, with an 'Unforced Turnover' record against A3.
