2. Team A is trailing by 4 points with :06 seconds left in the game with the ball. They tell the ref they are going to make a 3-pointer and then intentionally kick the ball for a delay of game. This would be the first offense for delay of game. What is the call in this situation?
Situation #1 -- There is no call as no violation has occurred. The offensive player holding the ball across the throw-in plane makes it available to the defense.

Situation #2 -- A technical foul is assessed to the defensive team. Two free throws awarded to the offensive team along with the ball for a throw-in at the division line. A delay of game warning is also issued with the technical foul. If there was less than 5 seconds you cannot allow the defense to benefit from committing this illegal act.
