If a basketball official calls a foul on a player and then notices that the team that committed the foul had 6 players on the court – What type of call(s) should he/she make on that play?

6 on 5 not fair
by: Anonymous What if one team scores that had six players on the court, do you take away the basket? A technical was called giving the other team 2 free throws and the ball . The refs kept the basket good ??????????????

An unusual situation…
by: Joe Waters – webmaster Typically a basketball referee will notice that a team has six players on the court and call an immediate technical foul.In the situation you describe, the basketball player would be called for a personal foul and the team would be called for a technical foul.

Hope this helps.
