Defensive Foul in the post, post defender uses two hands

This is an example of a defensive foul for illegal contact by a post defender. When guarding an offensive player with the ball in the lower defensive box, a defender may use one hand, one forearm and/or one leg to maintain his position. On this play, the post defender uses two hands, which is illegal, and a defensive foul is called. Note that two hands by a defender is an automatic foul, whether or not the offensive player’s speed, quickness, balance or rhythm is affected.
