Question submitted:
A1 on a fastbreak attempts to dunk, the ball bounces straight up. B1 is located underneath A1, A1 hangs on the rim. Ball comes down and goes in while A1 is still on the rim. Official disallows the basket due to basket interference and does not asess a technical foul. Is the official correct?

Rules Interpreter Response:
This ruling is correct. Grasping the ring to prevent injury is allowed. (10-3-3) However, since the player was touching the ring when the ball entered the basket, basket interference occurred and must be called. (4-6-1)
