Charging, RA play, Secondary defender establishes legal position

This is an example of an offensive foul for charging, with a defender legally positioned outside the Restricted Area. The secondary defender here establishes legal guarding position by being in the offensive player’s path prior to the offensive player starting his upward shooting motion, and the defender’s feet are completely outside the Restricted Area. Because the defensive player clearly establishes legal position and the contact is initiated by the offensive player, this is an offensive foul for charging.
