No official likes to start a game with a T, most of us do our best to make sure the book is all set prior to any penalties occurring.
Situation 1: Team A has 7 players in book with 1 minute in warm-ups remaining (required by 10 minutes). A1 gets sick during warm-ups, coach informs R he wants to add a player. R tells him no problem, but will cost him a technical foul, he knows and says that’s OK. By that time minute had run out, R calls technical foul on head coach and proceeds w/ B1 shooting, then B ball at division to start game, AP to A. Other notes:
- Coach retains coaching box privilege
