Basketball has two straightforward objectives: shoot the ball into the hoop to score a point, and score more points than the opposing team to win the game. While pursuing these objectives, a player may commit a foul, an infraction that violates the game’s rules.

A shooter who is fouled is awarded 1, 2 or 3 free throws depending on the location of the foul and whether or not the shot went in. A violation, on the other hand, is an infraction of the rules of basketball that cause a team to lose possession of the ball. There are no free throws taken when a violation occurs.
In basketball, a foul takes place when a player breaks the rules of illegal contact with an opponent. There will be a personal foul if the player exceeds the personal limit for each game. Violations result in suspension from some games.
