Agree. Wondering though, how do you penalize the defense if they commit this infraction?
That is a good question. But I think the defense penalizes themselves by not being able to cover an offensive player. But having said that the rule was created for an offensive player so they do not go around screens by going out of bounds. I have never seen a defender go deliberately off the court.

I also agree with Camron. I think the same could be said about the excessive elbows -- it's mainly an offensive violation. Bob, JRut, Camron, or Chuck (I don't mean to leave anyone out, I just know these guys usually answer the NCAA questions), as JRut stated, it's a violation in the NCAA, what's their penalty for the defense committing this?
