Foul in the Act of Shooting, defender makes body to body contact with shooter

This is an example of a defensive foul that is committed during the act of shooting. Immediately following the shot by the offensive player, the defensive player here makes illegal contact with the shooter before the shooter has safely returned to the floor. Three free throws would be awarded here as the shooter was behind the 3 point line and the field goal attempt was unsuccessful. If the field goal attempt was successful, the offensive player would then receive only 1 free throw attempt.
