Basketball Team Fouls
Resetting Team Fouls In Basketball
A team's foul count will reset at the end of each quarter or half. In college basketball (where there are no quarters), team fouls reset at the start of the second half. In the NBA, team fouls reset after every quarter.
Penalty Situations In Basketball
If a team reaches the foul limit for team fouls, they are in a penalty situation. There are two types of penalty situations in basketball: the bonus, and double bonus. The bonus is different in the NBA and college basketball.
College Basketball 1 And 1 Bonus
If a team commits seven fouls in a half, they are in the bonus. The bonus is also called the one-and-one in college basketball because the free throw shooter receives one additional free throw if the first one is made.
College Basketball Double Bonus
When a team is in the double bonus, they get two free throws every time a player is fouled. A team is only in the double bonus once they've committed ten fouls. The double bonus only exists in college basketball.
