Looking For Something Else? 

As a Basketball coach I have never seen this before and I hope I never see this play ever again! This is absolutely ridiculous and I hope this coach got fired! If you have all of your players huddle into a group and pass the Basketball to each other so they don't get a closely guarded call, your players will not learn anything at all. This is also very bad sportsmanship to teach your young players. 

If I were the referee I would have gave a delay of game technical foul to the players and coach for pulling this stunt off in a game.
