Delay, Player catches ball after made basket and drops ball away from Referee

This is an example of a delay of game violation. Players are not allowed to interfere with the ball once it passes through the net after a successful basket. On this play, the player on the scoring team grabs the ball after it passes through the net, and he rolls it away from the basket and from the new inbounding player. This is a delay of game violation for taking away an opportunity to immediately inbound the ball, and if this was his team’s 2nd delay of game violation, a technical free throw would be awarded to the opposing team.
