Blocking – Blocking foul is called when a defender is in the way of an offensive player driving to the basket. Things get tricky out of the restricted area. A lot of the calls are based on the referee

Charging – One of the keys to maintaining possession of the ball on offense is body control. A charge, or player-control foul, occurs when a dribbler charges into a defender who has already established his position.

Double foul – Two personal fouls in basketball committed by opponents against each other at the same time.

Hand-checking – A defender may not place and keep his hand on an opponent unless he is in the area near the basket with his back to the basket

Holding – Similar to a hand check foul, but is generally called when a player grabs another player and holds on to prevent them from moving.

Pushing – Involves a player making illegal contact with an opposing player while the ball is live.

Team foul – Each personal foul committed by a player is also counted against his team; when a team goes over the limit, its opponent is awarded a free-throw.

Tripping – A player who commits five personal fouls over the course of a 40-minute game, or six in a 48-minute game, fouls out and is disqualified for the remainder of the game.
