What does foul to give mean?

In basketball, teams are allowed to commit a certain number of fouls in a period or half without penalty. Once this number of fouls is exceeded, free throws are awarded when a defensive foul is committed regardless of whether the foul was committed while a player was shooting.In the NBA, up until the 5th foul of a quarter, any defensive foul committed while the offensive player fouled is not shooting does not result in free throws. Once a team commits it's 5th foul, all of that team's fouls committed on defense result in free throws.In U.S. college basketball, up until the 7th foul of a half, any defensive foul committed while the offensive player fouled is not shooting does not result in free throws. Once a team commits it's 7th foul, all of that team's fouls committed on defense result in free throws.You might hear the announcers say that a team is 'in the bonus'. That means that the other team has committed enough fouls (5 in the NBA and 7 in U.S. college) that each time the team is on offense and the other team commits a fouls, the team will shoot free throws.The term 'foul to give' means a team is below the number of fouls allowed in a quarter/half and can commit a defensive foul on a non shooter without having free throws awarded. In the NBA, a team that has committed 3 or less fouls in a quarter is said to have a 'foul to give' because, if they foul a non shooter, it will not result in free throws awarded. In U.S. college, a team that has committed 5 or less fouls in a half is said to have a 'foul to give' because, if they foul a non shooter, it will not result in free throws awarded.You might also hear the announcers say that a team is 'over the limit'. This is the opposite of 'foul to give'. 'Over the limit' means the team has committed enough fouls in a quarter/half so that every defensive foul they commit will result in free throws.

When a basketball TV commentator says Suton has two fouls to give what does that mean?

im not quite sure, but I'm guessing that Suton is a team right?: every half or period a team's total fouls (adds all the personal fouls of team's players) are added up. If they reach the 4th (NBA) or 7th (NCAA) foul then the opposing team automatically gets to go to the free throw line from then on. the total amount of team fouls reload at the half. So the commentator means that Suton can still cause two risk-free (except for shot attempt fouls) fouls. i hope that helps, paul

When TV commentator says Suton has two fouls to give what does that mean?

I'm guessing the commentator was talking about the team as a whole, not one specific player. When a team has fouls to give it means that they haven't reached the 1 and 1 yet. In this case they would have only committed 5 fouls, and they 1 and 1 isn't reached until they have committed 7. Another possibility is that the player had 3 personal fouls and he could give two more fouls.

What is a foul in tennis?

There are not "fouls" in tennis, but there are faults and mistakes you can make that will give the opponent the point. A foul in tennis would just be considered any action made by a player that causes the opponent to receive the point for that game. Stepping over the base line before completing your serve is a fault (fowl). Hitting the ball out of bounds (out of the court for doubles; inside or beyond the alleys for singles). Hitting the net with your racket during the game gives the opponent the point.

Could you give the list of fouls in basketball match?

I don't know much but.. When u r playing defense and they have the ball, reaching for the ball and touching the palm is a foul. When u r in offense, trying to guard or protect the ball shoving or pushing away their arms or body is foul. Also when offense is shooting and u try to pack them or block the shot it is okay if u tip the ball away after it leaves the hand but once again, touching the palm or knocking their hand away is a foul. Hope this helps?

What is a foul in basketball?

A foul is when you create too much physical contact with another player. For instance, hitting their arm on a shot attempt (or hitting their arm at all), pushing them, holding their jersey, tripping them (accidentally or not), and so on. You will be assessed with one foul, and if you reach 6 fouls (in the NBA; college has 5 fouls), you will be disqualified from the game and will have to watch from the bench.If you are fouled when shooting the ball, you will get free throws. If you were shooting a two point shot, you will get two free throws, and if it was a three point shot, you will get three free throws. If you made the shot and got fouled (two point or three point), you will get one free throw at the line.Double FoulA double foul is when two players commit personal fouls against each other at the same time, resulting in no free-throws for either team. These type of fouls usually happen when both players are frustrated with each other.Technical FoulA technical foul is usually assessed for unsportsman like conduct towards another player, referee, team, etc. For instance, if you dunk on an opponent and then wave your finger at him as if to say "get out of my house," you would be assessed with a technical foul. Other common technical fouls arise from arguing with the referee too much (the most common, considered unsportsman like conduct), hanging on the rim, or having too many players on the floor at one time. Technical fouls usually result in one-free throw.If a player is stationed in the key (colored rectangle underneath baskets) for three seconds, that team is given a technical foul. If it was an offensive player who picked it up, the other team gets the ball, and if the defensive player picks it up, the other team shoots one free throw.If you receive two technical fouls during a game, you are automatically ejected. Thus, players are always cautious after picking up one technical foul.Double TechnicalA double technical is usually given to two players under an intense or frustrating situation. For instance, if two players are fighting for position and give each other a shove after the play is over (or during the play), both will be hit with a double technical. No free throws are shot from this ruling.Flagrant FoulA flagrant foul is a foul that involves over-excessive contact. For instance, if a player is going up for a layup and the opponent takes a swipe at his head, knocking him hard to the floor, that player who took the swipe will be hit with a flagrant foul. A flagrant foul results in two players for the player who got hit by the opponent (in this case, the player who went up for the layup) as well as the ball for another posession.Two types of flagrant fouls are given: a flagrant one and flagrant two foul. If you are given a flagrant one, you will stay in the game. If you are given a flagrant two, you will automatically be ejected from the game.Clear Path FoulA clear path foul is given to a player who fouls an opponent in the open court when there is no one in front of that player. For example, say player one stole the ball and is going to the other end of the court to score, and there is no player in front of him. If player b comes and fouls player one to prevent him from having an uncontested layup, player b will be hit with a clear path foul. This results in player a shooting two free throws, and after he has shot them, his team will be awarded another posession. This is aimed to prevent teams from fouling players to make them earn their points from the line even though the player is going to have an uncontested layup.

Why was the invented the free throw line?

If a player has five fouls and is not thrown out should points be deducted when they are finally removed from a game of basketball?

In the NBA, a player has 6 fouls, so this must be a high school or college game. If so, points should definitely not be deducted. That would be punishing the players who scored the points. Never deduct points, but instead, reward the other team. Give the team of the player who would not leave a technical foul, allowing the other team to shoot a free-throw.

When is a foul tip on strike 3 a strike?

"NEVER! You must be a soccer fan." <- not necessarily Well, it depends what you are playing. Some recreational softball leagues will allow you to foul out. The last league I played in would give you a courtesy foul for your first foul with two strikes. Your next foul counts as the third strike. Slowpitch softball is a hitter's game, and this is one of the ways it takes away their advantage.
