I. THE GAME
A. 4 on 4 Basketball is a full-court game played by two teams of four players each, including no limit on substitutes.
B. Only players who are listed on a team’s roster form may play. No alternate or pick-up players will be allowed after the first 2 regular season games. It is suggested that all teams include five to seven names on their roster to decrease the chances of forfeited games.
C. Game time: Men will play two 16 minute halves with a 3 minute half-time.
D. Overtime: A tie score after regulation time shall result in a jump ball to determine who gets the ball first, and then a 2 minute running clock with the clock stopping the final minute on all whistles (like a normal game). If the score is still tied after the overtime period, the game will result in a tie.
E. One time out per half. No time outs during overtime periods.
