Q: When a fifth team foul in a quarter is a technical foul, what is the process in administering the foul shots? Do you just shoot the technical foul (one shot and ball for non-offending team) or do you shoot three shots? (two for fifth foul of quarter and one for "T") Who shoots those bonus shots if three shots are awarded understanding that the coach can select his free throw shooter for the technical?

A: You would just shoot the technical and, per the rules, anyone can shoot. It doesn’t matter that it is the 5th foul. Similar to a made basket and it happens to be the 5th foul. You penalize the foul as it is, not because it is the 5th foul.
