Question #1. Shooter A1 is intentionally fouled by Defender B1 as time expires in the first quarter (team B has the possession arrow to start the second quarter). The lane is cleared and player A1 shoots 2 free throws. How do we resume play in the 2nd quarter?? I'm fairly certain that we wouldn't start the 2nd quarter at the point of interruption from the intentional foul. I didn't think that any penalty from the first quarter carried over to the second quarter so we started the second quarter with Team B getting the ball at the division line. Correct or incorrect??
Question #2A. As time expires in the first quarter Team B bench is assessed a technical foul. Team B has the arrow to start the second quarter. This is similar to Question #1 except we have a technical foul instead of an intentional foul. Two shots awarded to Team A but How do we resume play in the second quarter??
Question #2B. Team B is assessed a technical foul after time has expired in the first quarter. Team B has the arrow to start the second quarter. Would the two shots awarded to Team A occur before the start of the second quarter or do we start the second quarter with two shots?? Once again how do we resume play in the second quarter??
