Basketball team ally oops...a teammate during inbounds play

The legal assist under FIBA rules was used in a Perth Western Australian Basketball League (WABL) game with Will Sciberras lifting James Bosnakis for the inbounds layup.

Uh oh...this edict has been issued to all WABL Associations and Referee Co-ordinators by the League:

Red 8 has deliberately lifted Red 9 in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage through an act outside of the spirit and intent of the rules. In this situation the basket should be cancelled, Red 8 administered with a Technical Foul resulting in one shot and a throw in for the Green team from the half way line opposite the scorers table.
