The coach of Team A leaves the bench area and goes to the table to seek information other than a correctable error:
(a) during a time-out; or
(b) during the intermission between the first and second quarters.
A technical foul is charged directly to the coach in both
(b) resulting in the loss of coaching-box privileges. If this information is required, it must be secured by a manager or statistician. A coach is not permitted at the table for this purpose. To allow exceptions would open the door for exploitation and would result in situations which could not be enforced consistently.
