General Rules of Basketball:
- You cannot run with the ball, unless it is being dribbled, or if a player needs to take some steps to stop himself when receiving the ball.
- If the ball goes out, the other team gains possession of the ball and a throw-in follows.
- If a player of one team scores a hoop, it is deemed two points, unless it is shot from the 3-point line, in which the point amount given will be 3.
- If a player is struck by another player, or if the ball is taken from a player deemed not fit by the referee, he may call a foul.
- The referee's decision is always final.
