Free Throw Violation, Disconcertion by defensive player during 1st free throw attempt
This is an example of a disconcertion violation committed by a defensive player positioned along the lane line during a free throw attempt. During all free throw attempts, no opponent in the game shall disconcert the shooter once the ball is placed at his disposal. The following are acts of disconcertion: (1) Raising his arms when positioned on the lane line ona free throw which will not remain in play, (2) Waving his arms or making a sudden movement when in the visual field of the shooter during any free throw attempt, (3) Talking to the free throw shooter or talking in a loud or disruptive manner during any free throw attempt. (4) Entering the lane and continuing to move during any free throw attempt. On this play, the defensive player enters the lane and continues to move during the free throw attempt, thereby committing a disconcertion violation. Since the attempt is unsuccessful, a substitute FT will be administered. Had the FT been successful, no penalty would be assessed.
