NFHS Case Play 6.7.9

A1 is fouled in the act of shooting by B1. While the ball is in the cylinder above the basket, A2 touches the ball.

The basket interference by A2 causes the ball to become dead and no goal can be scored. However, A1 is awarded two free throws for being fouled in the act of shooting an unsuccessful try. Players must occupy lane spaces as required and play continues as per rule when the last free throw is made or missed.
