3 Second Violation

This is gonna sound dumb coming from a high school basketball player but....if you only have one foot in the lane on offense does the referee still count 3 seconds?

Actually, a great basketball question...

Hey Caleb,

The 3 second violation can often be one of the hardest and most confusing basketball rules to understand.

To answer your question...Having any part of either foot on or inside the line is considered being in the lane.

So, the referee would start his 3 second count.

Hope this answers your question.

Best of luck,
