Offensive, defensive, technical, and flagrant. Offensive is when your team has the ball and is trying to score and someone on your team fouls a defensive player. Defensive is the opposite of offensive. Technical is when a player or is being unsportsmanlike to a player, coach, or ref. If you are T'd up (called for a technical foul) twice, you are ejected from the game and may receive fines or suspensions depending on how often you get technical fouls and the reason you got the technical foul. Flagrant is intentionally fouling a player very hard, typically resulting in injury/ies. Examples are stopping a layup by checking someone with your body (imagine Shaquille O'Neal colliding with Steve Nash and think of the impact). If the flagrant foul is bad enough, it can become a flagrant 2. If you get a flagrant 2 you are ejected immediately.

They can be broken up into 2 diffrent catagories, with many in both categories: Offensive: * Charge *Push *Illegal Screen *Hit/Hack *Over the Back *Holding *Technical Defensive: * Blocking *Push *Hold *Hit/Hack *Over the Back *Holding *Technical *Intentional *Flagrent In the NBA, there is a technical foul given to any defensive player whom stays in the lane area under the basket for more than three seconds without making any moves. Also in the NBA, there is a loose ball foul, which is given to any player whom "commits a foul upon the ball." (i.e.-kicking it, throwing it, etc.)

unlike in the NBA that the maximum of fouls is six, in a high school game the maximum of fouls you can commit is five fouls. I recommend you not to foul to hard because the ref can expel you from the game if he thinks that you did it on purpose. believe me it have happened to me. good luck.
