Goaltending

(Sport: Basketball)

Definition

When a shot is blocked by a defensive player as it is on its way down toward the basket or when a defensive player touches the ball as it is directly above the basket or on the rim. This is illegal and gives the offensive team an automatic two points. Offensive goaltending occurs when an offensive player touches the ball as it is directly above the basket or on the rim. The penalty for offensive goaltending is loss of possession of the ball.
