Foul?

A1 shoots and B1 approaches and tries to block his shot, but B1 makes contact with his hand slapping A1’s hand pretty hard. Foul?

NFHS rule 10-7-2
A player shall not contact an opponent with his/her hand unless such contact is only with the opponent's hand while it is on the ball and is incidental to an attempt to play the ball.

This is why it is important to actually SEE the contact you rule a foul. I hate it when players and coaches (and fans) say, “how could you not HEAR that?” Might have been illegal contact I didn’t see, but there’s just as much chance the contact could have been on a hand that was in contact with the ball, or the sound of a teammate making a slapping sound nearby in an attempt to deceive an official. Happens all the time. So I stopped caring about slap sounds long ago. Gotta see it.
