SCORE SHEET PROCEDURES
FIBA RULE CHANGES (starting this season):

Unsportsmanlike foul - To gain more clarity on when to call an unsportsmanlike foul and protect the dynamics of the game in transition.

New wording: An unsportsmanlike foul is a player contact foul which, in the judgement of an official, is:
• Excessive, hard contact caused by a player in an effort to play the ball or an opponent.
• Contact by the defensive player with no legitimate attempt to directly play the ball within the spirit and intent of the rules causing an unnecessary contact in order to stop the fast break or the progress of the offensive team in transition. This applies until the offensive player begins the act of shooting.

Game disqualification - The game disqualification is now also valid for 1 technical foul and 1 unsportsmanlike foul.

Changes: A player shall also be disqualified for the remainder of the game when he is charged with 1 technical and 1 unsportsmanlike foul. A player coach shall also be disqualified for the remainder of the game when he is charged with 2 technical fouls against his person where 1 of these fouls may also be an unsportsmanlike foul against him as a player.
