On defensive steals or rebounds, the ball must be returned to the check line, and the team in possession of the ball must maintain control and attempt to score. The player in possession of the ball on a rebound or steal does not have to pass the ball in play, they may retain possession, however on every change of possession, the ball must be taken back behind the checkline with both feet of the player behind the checkline.
