So far, ‘No, contest without fouling’ is winning. I’m with @Aaron Hill . Practicing this end of game situation and and any situation that you may ask your players to foul in. Definitely teaching them how in different situations is important.

The other issue is replicating end of game situations at full speed. I’ve found players quickly lose their energy and focus when practicing late game situations. Need to schedule small segments over a few practices and review throughout the season.

@ROBERT BRUNK – I like ‘if this then foul’.

@Steven Bingham – So true. So many factors to consider on both sides. I’ve also seen the inbounding of the ball then result in a jump ball situation (rightfully or wrongfully called). Leaving another thing in the official’s hands… ?
