    Message to Division 1,2,3 Administrators, Coaches, Coordinators and Officials:

    An interpretation was posted on ArbiterSports December 4, 2017, which addressed timeouts and the option to advance the ball.

    A timeout is not granted when the head coach or a player on the playing court asks for it; rather, it is granted when the official blows the whistle. Projected timeouts are not permitted. The head coach may certainly tell an official they want a timeout if the opponent’s last free throw or a field goal is successful, or when the coach’s player gets the rebound or controls the ball after there is a change of possession in the team’s backcourt. However, the head coach must still ask for the timeout when the ball is dead after the free throw or field goal, or when the coach’s player is holding the ball for the throw-in or the player is in control of the ball on the court after the rebound/change of possession.

    Situations have occurred where an official blows their whistle for a timeout when one may not be granted. The throw-in is in the air when they blow the whistle, or a player on the court has released the ball on a pass or dribble. When the ball is not dead, in the thrower-in’s hands or is loose on the playing court when the official blows their whistle for a timeout, this is an inadvertent whistle. The following list should be helpful to you:

    When a coach or a player requests a timeout and the ball is:

    1. Already released on a throw-in after a score and the throw-in has not ended (the ball has not been legally touched by a player on the playing court inbounds or out of bounds): this is an inadvertent whistle. The official will ask the coach if they still want the timeout and they MAY advance the ball.

    2. Already released on a throw-in after a score and the throw-in has ended and the ball is loose: this is an inadvertent whistle. The official will ask the coach if they still want the timeout and they may NOT advance the ball.

    3. Already loose after an opponent batted the ball from the rebounder/player’s hands: this is an inadvertent whistle. The official will ask the coach if they still want the timeout and they MAY advance the ball.

    4. Already loose after a player on the court fumbled the ball:  this is an inadvertent whistle. The official will ask the coach if they still want the timeout and they MAY advance the ball.

    5. Already released by the player in control to start a dribble: This is a legal timeout request, but the option to advance the ball is NOT available.

    6. Already released by the player in control of the ball on a pass: this is an inadvertent whistle. The official will ask the coach if they still want the timeout and they may NOT advance the ball.

    Now, the officials may judge that the ball was still in the thrower-in’s hands, or in the hands of the player on the court when the whistle sounded. This is a judgment of the officials and it is not reviewable using an available courtside monitor.

    Mary Toberman has been named NCAA Division III women’s basketball national coordinator of officials, bringing more than 19 years of officiating experience to the position.

    Toberman will direct officiating efforts around the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship including selection of officials for the championship based on their nomination/ranking from recommendations of conference coordinators of officials and conference offices.  As coordinator, she will also develop a method to evaluate the officials’ performance during the regular season and championship.  Toberman will report to the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship manager, NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball National Coordinator and NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Committee.

    “I am thrilled that the NCAA is making the investment in Division III women's basketball by starting this position,” said Toberman.  “I think we have an opportunity to build on our strong officiating community to bring even more consistency, quality and unity to our game across all regions of the country.”

    An NCAA women’s basketball referee at the Division I, II and III levels from 2002 to 2017, Toberman was selected to officiate in the Division III national championship rounds in 2009 and 2013, Division II regional rounds in 2014, 2016 and 2017 and the Division I WNIT first-round in 2017.  In addition to her collegiate work, Toberman worked Premier Basketball League (PBL) men’s games from 2007 to 2010 and served previously as a high school varsity official in Oregon and Minnesota.

    Currently an account project leader for DXC Technology in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Toberman earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration from the University of Washington in 1991, followed by a Master of Business Administration degree from Capella University in 2014.  

    “The committee is eager to begin working with Mary on officiating initiatives,” said Kelly Whitaker, NCAA Assistant Director of Championships and Alliances.  “She brings a lot of enthusiasm and sound ideas to the process.  Mary’s on-court officiating experience will lend a needed perspective in bridging the gap between the national coordinator, conference coordinators and officials.  All this will translate into assigning the highest quality officials which provides the best championship experience for the student-athletes.”
