Double Foul on Same Team

So, while watching a women’s High School Varsity game last night in Northern California, a referee called a "Double Foul" on the same team on the same play, at the same time!!

Team A, player A1 goes up for a layup and players B1 and B2 both reach for the ball, resulting in a foul call. The referee, decided that both players fouled player A1 and called a double foul. Player B1 and B2 both recived the foul.

I have never seen this before and could not find it in the rule book. I do some refereeing once in a while and want to make sure I understand the unusual aspects of the game.

Is there really an actual call of double foul in this situation???

By rule it would be a multiple foul as both fouls were committed by the same team as approximately the same time. Double fouls are fouls committed by opponents against each other at approximately the same time.

Maybe he meant simultaneous foul. It's in there, but I've never seen anyone use it.

The correct term is "multiple foul": 4-19-11.

In practice, most officials will "pick one" and call a single foul in this situation.

This would not be a simultaneous foul.

Ah right! Simultaneous is separate teams on separate individuals.

Multiple foul...

4-19-11

A multiple foul is a situation in which two or more teammates commit personal fouls against the same opponent at approximately the same time.


and

10-6-11...Penalties

6. Multiple Foul:
a. One free throw for each foul:
(1) No try involved.
(2) Successful or unsuccessful two-point try or tap.
(3) Successful three-point try or tap.

b. Two free throws for each foul:
(1) Intentional or flagrant foul.

Plus ball for throw-in if intentional or flagrant.

NOTE: If one or both fouls of a multiple foul are flagrant, two free throws are awarded for each flagrant foul. Any player who commits a flagrant foul is disqualified.

Probably the only time this gets called all year, nation wide.
