A charge in basketball is when a player comes in and deliberitly knocks down a player to try to get a foul called on the other team. When the ref is paying attention they will call a charge foul on ethier the offense. Like a charge a blocking foul is when a defensive player plants themselves in front of an on coming player and refuse to move to the point of the player coming at them to take down the blocking player. These two fouls seem to be up to the disgression of the ref, but people have more to say about how bad the ref is calling a game and don't pay attetion why the ref called certain fouls like a charge or a blocking foul. Here are some rules about an offensive plenlty if called A personal foul assessed against an offensive player which is neither an elbow, punching or flagrant foul shall be penalized in the following manner: (1) No points can be scored by the offensive team (2) The offending player is charged with a personal foul (3) The offending team is not charged with a team foul
holding pushing tripping charging illegal screen blocking hitting technical flagrant
holding foul is an illegal use of hand foul
You might be referring to the white arc inside the paint underneath the basket. That's the "restricted area" if a player tries to take a charge while in that area, he will be called for a blocking foul rather than taking a charge.
holding in basketball is like the same thing in football holding by the shirt or shoes its not illegal but it will be a tech foul
what do you mean by blocks there is a blocking foul only for defense offinse it would probably be a moveing pick or something if your talking about blocking a shot you can block anyone where ever they are just don't hit him and if you do make shour he doesn't make it
>A player control foul is what uninformed people call a charge. In reality, a charge is similar >to a blocking foul. Actually, a player control foul is any foul that is committed by a player who is control of the ball. This is in contrast to three other types of fouls: A team control foul is a foul that is committed by a player whose team has the ball but who is not the team member in control of the ball. A loose ball foul is committed when neither team is in control of the ball. There is no term for the usual foul committed when the other team has control of the ball. A charge is the "rulebook" term for a pushing foul. It can be committed as a player control foul, a team control foul, a loose ball foul, or a "defensive" foul. The official should signal a player control foul (of any type, charging, tripping, or otherwise) with one hand behind the head and the other arm extended outward. A defensive charging foul is signaled by the official using a pushing motion. The reason for the distinction between player control, team control, loose ball, and defensive fouls is that when a team is over the foul limit, free throws are awarded for some types of fouls but not others. (I believe you shoot for any foul except player control, but this may differ by organization - HS, NCAA, NBA, etc.)
