Q: Team A is attempting to "stall out" the final 4 min of the game. With no shot clock at our level, can team B foul off the ball and force a weaker foul shooter to attempt the free throws?

A:  It is legal for a foul to occur off-ball, provided it doesn’t fall under the provisions in article 37 which outline the standards for an Unsportsmanlike foul. As an example, if a defender is out of their cylinder when contact occurs but doesn't intentionally grab their opponent, this would likely be a common foul and can certainly happen off-ball.
