Here is a scenario that we have been strategizing about lately.
End of the game situation and Team A is ahead by 3 points, Team B has the ball out of bounds. 5 seconds remain. Team A elects to foul as soon as Team B inbounds the ball. Shooter from Team B makes the first free throw. Team B wants to miss the second free throw in order to get a stick back and tie the game. Player from Team A steps in and gets a lane violation. Team B must re-shoot the second shot. Team A continues to violate. What is the end game? Does Team B shoot until they make it, since Team A continues to violate? This is a strategy for Team A because now Team B has no chance for an offensive rebound to tie the game or take the lead.

I have asked several officials and have received different responses. Some have said that by the letter of the rule, teams would be there until Team A no longer violates or until Team B makes a free throw. I had another official say he would give an unsportsmanlike warning, followed by a technical foul for unsportsmanlike behavior for intentionally violating. But is intentionally missing a free throw unsportsmanlike as well? Where is the line drawn? How do you handle this situation?

Committing repeated violations like these are clearly addressed in the NFHS Basketball Case Book as follows.... (bolded the part that applies here)

"Non-contact, away from the ball, illegal defensive violations (i.e. excessively swinging the elbows, leaving the floor for an unauthorized reason) specifically designed to stop the clock near the end of a period or take away a clear advantageous position by the offense should be temporarily ignored. The defensive team should not benefit from the tactic. If time is not a factor, the defense should be penalized with the violation or a technical foul for unsporting behavior. (10-1-8)"

In other words, because the defensive team is attempting to remove the offense's advantage by repeating the violation, and time is a factor, then the violation should be ignored.

If this happened when time wasn't a factor, then a technical foul should be assessed.

As far as a team intentionally missing FT's.... Missing a FT attempt is does not violate any rule, hence you have nothing but a missed shot.
