This play is an example of a defensive foul, committed PRIOR to the offensive player starting the act of shooting, and this is a non-shooting foul. In order for a foul to be ruled to have occurred in the act of shooting, the offensive player must gather the ball and begin his continuous motion to shoot prior to the foul occurring. The foul by the on ball defender on this play occurs PRIOR to the gather of the ball by the offensive player. Because this contact occurred PRIOR to the gather of the ball by the offensive player, and the gather marks the beginning of the continuous shooting motion, this is a non-shooting foul.
