Technical Foul Free Throws

We have a player technical and a coach technical, both on Team A. Thus, Team B is shooting 4 free throws. Can Team B substitute a player to shoot the free throws? Also, can Team B's coach pick 4 different players to shoot the free throws, or are they in a combination of 2?

NFHS yes you can substitute a player in to shoot and yes you could potentially have 4 different shooters (Just remember that those subbed out cannot return until the clock has started, if there is ever a situation where to watch for that, this is it). NCAA you have to have the same shooter shoot both FTs of an individual T.

Anyone can shoot a T FT, including every available sub on the bench. So yes, you could have 4 different players shoot those FTs at the NF level. NCAA level you could only shoot with 2 different players per T sequence.

Peace

8-3 The free throws awarded because of a technical foul may be attempted by any player of the offended team, including an eligible substitute or designated starter. The coach or captain shall designate the free thrower(s).

I would ask the Coach, not the Captain.

Because most captains aren't smart enough to know the options nor dumb enough to reply without asking the coach.

So, cut out the middleman.

Why would we ask the captain when we are allowed to ask the coach?

Because, historically, The Captain is The Man, not the Head Coach. I do not have time to go into it now because MTD, Jr., and I are getting ready to go to our last H.S. game of the year.

MTD, Sr.

While that might of been true in the past, in reality, we now treat the coach as the head honcho. The captain now is more of a ceremonious position that we use sometimes to help with trouble players.

I'm asking the boss the questions rather than someone delegated to speak for him.

You're just begging for MTD's history lesson, aren't you? He'll be along later to educate us on the benefits of the buggy whip, telegraph, and prominence of the captain back in a time when the coach was a non-entity like modern day cheer leaders.

Oh I know we'll be getting a history lesson in the near future.

I'm asking whomever closest to me. If that's the captain and he/she wants to discuss it with their coach, what's an extra 20 seconds to me? In the list of the top 100 things that matter during a game, this comes in around #2436 imo.

The only point I was trying to make was that you don't have to ask the coach. Hopefully that will be enough to forestall another 231,000 word filibuster from MTD Sr. on why historically we should ask the captain. But I'm not counting on it.
