Possession Arrow

What is the Possession Arrow??

The possession arrow is not used in the NBA, in almost all other levels of basketball the possession arrow determines which team gets possession in a jump ball situation (ie. simultaneous possession or if the ball gets stuck on the rim).

Sporting Charts explains Possession Arrow

In non-NBA competition when a jump ball situation is called by the official, the team that is attacking the end of the court in which the arrow is pointed will be awarded possession.  After, the arrow is flipped to the opposite direction, therefore next time a jump ball situation arises the other team will be awarded the ball.
