There is no play on advantage rule in basketball, like in football or netball, where they say advantage contact.
In basketball once the whistle has been blown the decision stands.
However the Advantage/Disadvantage Concept is in the rule book on page 51 and is part of the officials duties and powers.
From Current Rule Book:
RULE EIGHT- OFFICIALS, TABLE OFFICIALS, COMMISSIONER: DUTIES AND POWERS
ART. 47 Officials: Duties and Powers
When deciding on a personal contact or violation, the officials shall, in each instance, have regard to weigh the following fundmental principles:
- The spirit and intent of the rules and the need to uphold the integrity of the game.
- Consistency in application of the concept of ''advantage/disadvantage''. The officials should not to seek to interrupt the flow of the game unnecessarily in order to penalise incidental personal contact which does not give the player responsible an advantage nor place his opponent at a disadvantage.
- Consistency in the application of common sense to each game, bearing in mind the abilities of the player concerned and their attitude and conduct during the game.
- Consistency in the maintenance of a balance between game control and game flow, having a 'feeling' for what the participants are trying to do and calling what is right for the game.
We encourage referees to use our voices if contact has occurred and is considered incidental and has placed the player at no disadvantage. Common terms used are '' keep going", still got it'' or could use '' keep playing'' or simply '' incidental contact''. The players and coaches will know you have acknowledged the contact but have considered the contact has been incidental.
