NFHS Case Play 8.6.3 Situation A

A1 is attempting the second free throw of a two-shot foul. While the second free throw is in flight, A2 and B1 punch each other simultaneously.

Both A2 and B1 are disqualified for fighting. Since this is a double personal foul, no free throws are awarded. The ball is put in play at the point of interruption. If A1’s free throw is successful, Team B is awarded a throw-in from anywhere along the end line. If A1’s free throw is unsuccessful, the alternating-possession procedure is used.
