a. Beginning with a team’s seventh foul in each half and for the eighth and ninth foul, the bonus is awarded only if the first free throw is successful.

b. Beginning with a team’s 10th foul in each half, two free throws are awarded whether or not the first free throw is successful.

NOTE: Rule 2-10-1 a, b are applied if a merited free throw is not awarded or an unmerited free throw is awarded.
