NFHS Case Play 9.1.3 Situation C

A1 is preparing to attempt a free throw. Prior to A1’s release of the ball, B1 fakes causing A2 to enter the lane prematurely. A1 then requests and is granted a time-out.

Upon resuming play, A1 is entitled to a free throw and the official shall use the proper signal indicating a violation by B1 prior to the granting of the time-out. If the free throw is successful, the violation is ignored, if unsuccessful a substitute throw is awarded.
