0.3 And The "Try" & "Tap" (VIDEO)

ART. 6 --A tap shall be considered the same as a try for field goal, except as in 5-2-5.

ART. 7 -- The tap starts when the player’s HAND(S) touches the ball.


. . . When play is resumed with a throw-in or free throw and three tenths (0.3) of a second or less remains on the clock, a player may not gain control of the ball and try for a field goal. In this situation only a tap could score.

Now the play that has been all over social media--You make the call!
