This issue is a sore spot with me. Here you have the state association making up a rule that has no support in the rule or case books.

Legal defense is legal anywhere on the court. If the offensive player driving to the basket crashes into a defender who is right under the basket and knocks the defender on his backside, then the defender has taken a position which required the offensive to change his shot to avoid the foul.

I hope I never see the stupid NBA semi-circle appear on HS courts.
