NFHS Case Play 10.5.5 Situation B

A fight breaks out between A1 and B1 during a dead-ball and clock-stopped situation. The head coach of Team A rushes onto the court.

A1 and B1 are charged with flagrant technical fouls and are disqualified. No free throws are awarded for the double technical foul by A1 and B1. Since the head coach is allowed on the court without being beckoned by an official when a fight occurs, he/she is not charged with a flagrant technical foul and would not be disqualified. Resume play using point of interruption.
