    The NJCAA uses NCAA playing rules for the sport of men’s basketball. The NJCAA approved the implementation of the recent NCAA rule changes for men’s basketball for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons. However, the NJCAA does have a few exceptions to the current NCAA rules for men’s basketball:

    1. The NJCAA does not permit dunking during both pregame and halftime warmups. Penalty for dunking during pre-game or halftime of any regular or post-season game is a Class B technical foul which results in one free throw awarded to any member of the offended team.

    2. NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules are to be followed and enforced during any NJCAA contest. The NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules enforce more severe penalties than the NCAA men’s basketball rulebook. Officials that work NJCAA contests are expected to adhere and enforce NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules. 

    There are several areas where the NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules differ from the NCAA men’s basketball rulebook, below are two examples:

    a) The use of a racial slur in an NJCAA contest is punishable with an immediate ejection.

    b) Players or bench personnel other than the head coach that leave the bench are or designated warm up area when a fight may break out or has broken out is to be given a violent ejection.

    One of the NJCAA’s basic principles is that athletic competition fosters mutual respect for opponents, coaches, fans, administrators, game personnel and officials. The NJCAA is the only national association in college athletics that enforces a sportsmanship code across all sports.

    Adopted in 2004, the NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules provide clear distinction to specific behaviors and actions that will not be tolerated.

    Assignors responsible for scheduling officials for NJCAA contests are expected to know and enforce the NJCAA Sportsmanship Code above all other sport-specific rules. Officials contracted to work NJCAA regular season or post-season competition are also expected to understand, enforce and apply the policies set forth in the NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules.
