    Excessive Swinging of Elbows

    Question: Can the excessive swinging of elbows be called a technical or just a foul if no contact or if contact is made? In the signal section of the rule book it show #40 as the signal for this type of foul.

    Answer: The penalty for "excessive swinging of elbows" can only be called a Technical Foul (Article 38.3.1). However, if contact is made in this situation, the offending player shall be charged with a Personal Foul or an unsportsmanlike foul.
