== == == == It is called the "game reset" because it resets the current timeouts that are available to each team.

Because it provides essentially all the information you need to know about the game at the present time, regardless of whether you just flipped to the channel, or haven't been paying close attention, or whatever. Getting this information "resets" your knowledge of the game to the current situation.

Can an opposing team call a timeout during a foul shot?

The non-offensive team may call a timeout during any dead-ball situation.

Not positive of the rule at other levels. Dallas in the 2006 Finals against Miami famously (and erroneously) called their final timeout after the first of two Dwyane Wade free throws, meaning they couldn't advance the ball to halfcourt after he took his second, if you want an example.

Upon resumption of play, the team granted the timeout shall have the option of putting the ball into play at the 28' hash mark in the frontcourt or at the designated spot out-of-bounds. If the ball is put into play at the hash mark, the ball may be passed into either the frontcourt or backcourt. If it is passed into the backcourt, the team will receive a new 8-second count.h.
