Team A has 2 team fouls and team B has 5 team fouls in the quarter. Dribbler A1 and B1 now commit a foul against each other at approximately the same time.Interpretation: The penalties against both teams are not equal, therefore it is not a double foul. A1’s foul shall be penalized with a team B throw-in. B1’s foul shall be penalized with 2 free throws for A1. The officials shall apply the special situations rule and decide which foul has occurred first. In case B1’s foul has occurred first, A1 shall attempt 2 free throws with no line-up.

- A warning is NOT REQUIRED for excessive swinging of the elbows. A technical foul may be charged. Although a comment may be enough…happy ending.
