What happens if you exceed the amount of allowable fouls in a basketball game?

Each player is allowed five fouls apiece. Once the player(s) reach their five foul limit, they are done for the game. A team may foul as many times as it wants as long as they have team members to foul. Also, as a side note, any technical fouls given to a player, are not included in the five foul total--they are simply just addidtions. However, if a player and/or a coach receives two techincals in one game, they are automatically ejected from that gameAnswerThen you will have to sit off for the rest of the game.

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.

What happens when a the 5 player on an nba team fouls out with no replacement on bench?

I never seen nothing like that happen before because every team has a roster of at least 15-20 players. This may not happen in pro basketball, but if it was to happen in high school they may give the win to the other team because there must be 5 players on each team.

What is the object of the game basketball?

The object of the game is to get as many points as possible, and have the other team with the least amount of points. There are 2 spots you can shoot from on the court. There is a "rainbow" shaped line, that if the ball is shot from beyond that line, it counts as 3 points. Anywhere inside of that line counts as 2 points. If another player makes hard contact with the other team member, it is a foul. If someone is shooting and is fouled, they get to shoot from the straight line with the circle around it, called the free throw line. There are 4 quarters in the game, and each player is allowed to have 6 fouls per game (in college, you get 5). You can also have 2 technical fouls. If you reach 6 fouls, and 2 technical fouls, you are ejected from the game, and cannot play until the next game. Hope this helped you. This is just a brief description. Remember Miami Sucks, Boston sucks, GO LAKERS!!!!
