Free Throw Violation, Defensive team player enters from above 3 point line arc prior to the release of the Free Throw

This is an example of a Free Throw Violation, committed by a defensive player positioned above the three-point line. During free throw attempts, players positioned above the three-point line must remain outside the arc until the ball has been released by the shooter. On this play, #7 in the white uniform is standing inside the three-point line when the free throw is released, causing a violation to be assessed when the shot is unsuccessful.
