TECHNICAL NEWS: THE “TARGET SCORE” RULE IN TRENTO FOR THE FIRST TIME

In this edition of the IBSA Next Gen Cup, new technical rules are being applied and will be applied on an experimental basis which could represent an element of spectacularisation, speeding up of the game, improvement and individual training of the athletes.

In the final phase the new Target Score rule will also apply:

At the first dead ball, under 4 minutes remaining at the end of the 4th quarter, a Target Score of the game is identified by adding 8 points to the team that has the highest score at that moment. That becomes the score that must be reached or exceeded to win the game for both teams. From that moment on, the remaining time of the match is reset and only shot clocks are used.

Example: At the first dead ball under 4 minutes the score is 78 to 82. The team that first reaches or exceeds the score of 90 points will win.

Furthermore, the technical regulatory changes already tested in the previous stages of the group phase in Varese and Biella will be confirmed:

After a violation in the defensive half of the pitch, the referees must not give the ball to the team entitled to the throw-in.

Bonus to six team fouls. From the sixth foul onwards, in a quarter of the game, the team that has suffered the foul, not in shooting action, will be awarded a point and granted a free throw.

The rule of alternating possession has been eliminated, providing that every contested ball is administered with a jump ball.

If after a free throw the team that returns to defense, in the case in which it presses full court and recovers the ball in the first half of the field, scores a basket in the possession generated by the recovery, this basket is worth 1 more point.

The interval between the second and third quarters will be 5 minutes.

 

TECHNOLOGICAL AND DIGITAL ACTIVITIES, MICROPING OF PLAYERS AND COACHES CONTINUES DURING THE MATCHES  

Even in the Final Phase of the Tournament, innovative technological solutions and digital activities will continue to be presented, such as the miking of players and coaches throughout the match, including pre- and post-match, in order to collect all their dialogues. The conversations will be recorded so that, after the end of the competition, they can be examined and summarized. Once the audio track has been obtained, a series of videos will be created which will exclusively tell the "behind the scenes" of the Event.
