There will be a rule change dealing with free throws at the high school level
There will be a rule change in high school basketball next season involving free throws.
Beginning next fall, high school basketball teams will shoot two free throws for common fouls when in the “bonus.” This change eliminates the one-and-one scenario and sets new foul limits at five each quarter for awarding the bonus free throw. Team fouls will reset at the end of each quarter.
Rules changes were approved recently by the NFHS Board of Directors.
Previously, teams were awarded the one-and-one bonus when their opponents committed seven fouls in a half and two foul shots when 10 fouls were committed each half.
NFHS says the idea behind the change is to reduce injuries during rebounding situations and improve game flow.
