Intentional Fouls:

I've been asked to re-clarify the number of free-throws awarded for intentional fouls. Since intentional fouls are a POE, we need to make sure that we are administering them correctly. I will direct you to 4-19-3, Situation A (pg 28), in the 2017-18 Case Plays book. Using that case play, you should be able to answer the following questions:

How man FTs are awarded for an intentional foul committed while in the act of shooting a 2-point shot, that is missed?

What if the 2-point shot is made, how many FTs?

What if the shot attempt is a missed 3-point attempt?

How about a made 3-point attempt?

What if there is no shot attempt? For example, a player is intentionally fouled while dribbling the ball.

Since the last free-throw awarded on an intentional foul will result in a dead ball, the lane will be cleared for the administration of the free throws. The ensuing throw-in will take place near the spot of the foul.
