Question: From a shot for goal, the ball is already into the net when an offensive player touches the net/ball that causes the ball to pop out. Is this a Violation or a "no call" situation?

Answer: Article 31.2.4 states that Interference occurs when:

A Defensive player touches the ball or the Basket while the ball is within the basket, thus preventing the ball from passing through the net.

Therefore, an offensive player can not commit interference in this example and the action is ignored.
