Find the initial direction and time of flight of a basketball, given initial speed and distance

A player passes a basketball to another player who catches it at the same level from which it was thrown. The initial speed of the ball is 7.1m/s, and it travels a distance of 4.6m. What were (a) the initial direction of the ball and (b) the time of flight?

I can’t figure a way using only kinematic equations and soh cah toa, am I missing something? I tried using trigonometric identities but got stumped late into the algebra.

Basketball “climbing” foul

If an attacking player sees a defender slip for example and fall to one knee. Can the offensive player use the defenders knee as a platform to jump, like running up n jumping off the defender?

Or a similar example of the same type thing, an attacker has the ball, jumps to attack the rim, but pushes their hand down ontop of an opponents head generate more height, is this a foul?
