If a team shoots their technical foul on the wrong basket who gets the score?

I am a high school basketball official. Good Question. There is a rule on what to do if that situation arises. Rule 2-10 is about "correctable errors." It states that the officials may correct an error if a rule is inadvertently set aside and results in: a. Awarding of an unmerited free throws b. Failure to award an unmerited freethrow(s) c. Allowing the wrong player to shoot the free throws d. Allowing a player to shoot the free throws(s) at the wrong basket e. Erroneously awarding or canceling a score. You are interested in "D." Officials may correct this error (provided it is recognized during the first dead ball after the clock has properly started). No matter how many he/she made or missed at the wrong basket, the free throws are nullified and he/she shall shoot at the proper basket. During this, points scored, the time consumed and all related activity prior to the recognition of the error shall not be nullified; meaning if a team scored then the error is realized, that basket counts.

Is there an offside rule in basketball?

There is no offside rule in the sense that the term is usually used in soccer and ice hockey. It is not necessary that the defenders have one or more men between the ball and the basket. However, there are other rules to regulate player positioning. The over-and-back rule requires that once the attacking team has moved the ball into their opponents' half of the court, they may not move it back to their half again. This concentrates the action nearer to the basket. The "no camping" rule declares that no defending player may spend more than three seconds within the lane at a time, so the defenders can't just "camp out" under the basket to prevent shots on it. Hence all the inefficient-looking jockeying for position under the basket.
