In basketball, there is a special type of foul for those that do not have to do with the movements a player makes on the court. Referees enforce these administrative and procedural rules via technical fouls.
If a team runs out of timeouts and still tries to call one, the other team gets a single free thrown and possession of the ball. This most famously occurred in the 1993 NCAA Championship, where Michigan called an excessive timeout at a crucial point in the game. They were assessed with a technical foul, effectively ending the game.
If a player or coach prevents the game from continuing, they are first given a delay of game warning before receiving a technical foul on a second offense. This is usually called when a player touches the ball after their team scores a basket.
The most famous conduct technical may be owned by Rasheed Wallace, who owns the NBA record for technical fouls in a single season (41). "Sheed" was given a technical foul and ejected just for looking at a referee.
In college basketball, a class B technical foul is called if no physical contact is made between players. Class B technical fouls result in one free throw for the other team and do not count towards the team foul count.
In college basketball, an administrative technical foul is an organizational error, such as failing to submit a team roster prior to the start of a game. Administrative technical fouls can result in one free throw, but don't count towards the team foul count.
