Fighting

Rule 10.8.a(2) states that "Numbers of participants are not corresponding - Flagrant fouls and disqualification for all participants, two free throws are awarded for the offended team for each additional player, offended team awarded a division line throw in."   

So if there is 5 players on team A fighting 3 players on team B fighting, does this mean that B gets 4 free throws and the throw in?

Also, it looks like the rules for Bench Personnel states that if there is 1 assistant and 2 players coming off of the bench for Team A and 1 player coming off of the bench for Team B, then Team B gets 4 free throws and the ball out at the division line.  Also, the head coaches have 3 indirect technical for Team A and 1 indirect technical for Team B.  So the head coach for Team A is ejected.  Is this true?

It depends.

When bench personnel enter the court during a fight, their penalties depend on whether they participate in the fight.

If they do NOT participate, they are each charged with flagrant fouls. If the numbers balance, no free throws. If the numbers do not balance, the team with fewer fouls shoots 2 FT's, regardless of how many fewer bench personnel entered, plus the ball. Indirects to the HC.

If they DO participate in the fight, then the penalty is the same as for players fighting, plus indirects for each flagrant foul to the HC.

A coach with 2+ indirects is ejected and must leave the gym.
