I am not fouling.  I tell my players to try to grab the ball and force a jump ball  as it’s a 50/50 ball, especially if we have the possession arrow.  Of course this depends on how good the other team guard is but I have learnt that if you apply tight on ball defense late in the closing minutes of a game that most players will pick up their dribble.  The key is teaching your players to grab the ball with both hands without fouling.
