Illegal Contact, body bump, defender affects dribbler’s SQBR

“This is an example of a defensive foul for illegal contact between the dribbler and his defender. The on-ball defender, Khem Birch, initiates contact with his body to the body of the dribbler, Jeremiah Martin. This contact affects the dribbler’s balance and rhythm as he starts to drive toward the basket. On-ball defenders cannot affect an opponent’s speed, quickness, balance or rhythm.”
