Technical Foul, dead ball contact

This is an example of a Technical Foul for contact after the whistle. Players are not allowed to make unsportsmanlike contact with their opponents after the whistle, and technical fouls will be assessed if warranted. On this play, the player on the floor in the blue uniform intentionally extends his leg and trips his opponent in the white uniform. This unsportsmanlike contact by the player in the blue uniform is illegal, whether the ball is dead or alive, and since it occurs during a dead ball here, it is penalized with a Technical Foul.
