Trades! What?!?!

More Fouls??? What?!?!?

The revolution is here! Gone are 1 pointers! Enter 2s & 3s!!

  • If the losing team is down by 10 points or less, with 10 seconds or less remaining on the game clock, they are allowed to foul.
  • The losing team can foul as many times as they wish, as long as the first part of this section still applies.
  • ​Whomever is fouled on the leading team will shoot TWO free throws -- worth ONE point each.
  • The ball is live after the second shot.



  • That's right -- TRADES will be part of TomBall this year on a trial basis to see how it works
  • Once teams are sent out, each Captain will have until 11PM Eastern Time on FRIDAY NIGHT to make a trade with another team
  • It is MANDATORY that each Captain make AT LEAST ONE trade
  • Trades must be approved by The Commissioner prior to 11PM Eastern Time
  • Trades will not be made public until The Commissioner announces them at the start of The Classic 

Game Times & Timeouts

No longer do you have to RSVP three months in advance for The Classic!

fouls & free throws

  • A 3-point line will be added to each side of the court at roughly 18' feet away from the respective basket.
  • Any made basket that originates from within the 3-point line (this includes if any part of your body is touching the 3-point line) will count as TWO POINTS
  • Any made basket that originates from beyond the 3-point line (no part of your body is touching the 3-point line) will count as THREE POINTS
  • A free throw is still worth ONE POINT
  • I will be asking for some reimbursement this year from everyone
  • Once I know the total amount I will let everyone know
