Spanish ~ Español: Es Doble Falta Falsa ?
Code: FO02


A1 is fouled on the arm by B1 as he taps the ball towards the basket following a teammate’s field goal attempt bounces off the ring. A1 then comes down violently into B2 who has legal position before the ball passes through the basket.

The second official calls the foul on B1 and the first official calls a player control foul on A-1.

The two officials confer one with the other from the moment that they both have called a foul.
What is the proper ruling and the correct statistical registration ?


This situation is a false double foul. A1 is fouled in the act of shooting and then perpetrates a player control foul. Because of the player control foul by A1, the goal is declared null.

Since A1 was fouled in the act of shooting, A1 is awarded 2 free throws with no line up on the lane for the reason that the ball will remain dead after the free throws.

The ball is awarded to team B for a throw in on the end line at the spot nearest to where the foul occurred, in this case on the free throw lane line extended spot throw in.
