If my lie is right in front of a tree and directly in line with the basket, can I mark my lie, grab the tree (that is behind me) for support, lean out (keeping my foot behind my mini), and make my throw? I know this would not work if the tree was in front of me and I was leaning on it, but someone asked me recently (after I had just done it with the tree behind me), and I said that since the tree was not between my lie and the basket I thought it was okay. Thoughts?

If the tree is no closer to the basket than your lie, then sure. But don't grab a branch if where you are grabbing is closer to the basket than your lie.
I thought that this would count under the "support" ruling ? even if tree or branch is behind your lie you cant lean against it or grab it for support? lemme go look...
hmmm. NM. must be just some-misinformation because I don't see that in the rule book. Bill is correct of course :)
I concur.
