Double Free Throw Violation

A1 is shooting the second of 2 foul shots. B1 enters the lane early before A1 releases the ball. A1 then air balls the free throw. It is determined by the calling official there was no distraction of A1 by B1. What is the correct call? (Sorry if this was posted earlier, but I couldn't find a thread discussing this situation.)

It is actually it is treated like a simultaneous violation. You would go to the AP arrow and give the ball to the team that has the arrow.

If there were more FTs (which you clearly stated there was not) then they would get to shoot those if they were entitled to them. Obviously, that would not apply to a 1 and 1 bonus free throw situation.

There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

Thank you grunewar for the Case Book reference. I had overlooked it yesterday even though I have it underlined.

You would also find the answer in the rule book, 9-1-4(b), which references 9-1-3.
