Goaltending (also Technical foul), defensive player grabs net to block shot

This play is an example of a goaltending violation AND a non-unsportsmanlike technical foul. A defensive player may not grab and hold the net to gain or maintain height while making a defensive play on the ball during a field goal attempt. On this play, the defensive player clearly grabs the net with his left hand while tapping the ball with his right hand. This is a goaltending violation and technical foul, and 2 points would be scored in addition to one free throw attempt to any of the five players in the game.
