Is 6 fouls in the NBA a foul-out?

When you get 6 fouls in any nba game you foul-out of the game and that player who received the 6 fouls has to sit on the bench for the remainder of the game. If there are only 5 players who are able to play and everybody else is either injured, inactive or has fouled-out, then if another player gets fouled-out then there would be only 4 players able to play but under the nba rule book there always has to be 5 players on the court so that last player who is supposed to foul-out has to stay in the game but other than that yes, 6 fouls in a nba game is a foul-out

How many fouls are allowed per basketball game?

A player only has up to five fouls from high school up to college, and the NBA allows six fouls before fouling out. A team; however, may foul as many times as they want, granted they have the players to do so. In my experience,only 5 fouls are allowed per basketball game. If you have 3, your coach may call a time-out and tell you to be careful. If you have 4 fouls, it is most likely that you will be taken out of the game unless there is not a large amount of time left in the game. 5 fouls are allowed in anything up to and including college. In the NBA, players are allowed 6. Five is the limit in international play.

How many points do you get for a snooker?

You get no points for a snooker. A snooker is when you leave your opponent where they can not directly hit an object ball, because another ball is in their path, or possibly they are in the jaws of a pocket and the pocket is blocking their shot. You will only get points if the player then fouls. So you can get a player into a snooker and if the player does not foul on the next shot, you get no points. You don't get points for putting them in a snooker; you get points if they foul after you have got the snooker. If the player does foul, then you will get either 4, 5, 6 or 7 points, depending on the foul that the player makes.

If a batter bunts a third strike foul and the ball is caught by the catcher is it a fly out or a strike out?

It is a fly out. According to baseball rule 10.15 (a) (4) The pitcher is credited with a strikeout on a 3rd-strike foul bunt, unless "(4)... unless such bunt on third strike results in a foul fly caught by any fielder, in which case the official scorer shall not score a strikeout and shall credit the fielder who catches such foul fly with a putout."

My friend puts his hand on the 4 ball say and takes his shot because the 4 ball is in the way of the cue and he would have to aim downwards to hit it otherwise. Link please Is this legal in pool?

Straight out of the world-standardized WPA rules:6.6 Touched BallIt is a foul to touch, move or change the path of any object ball except by the normal ball-to-ball contacts during shots. It is a foul to touch, move or change the path of the cue ball except when it is in hand or by the normal tip-to-ball forward stroke contact of a shot. The shooter is responsible for the equipment he controls at the table, such as chalk, bridges, clothing, his hair, parts of his body, and the cue ball when it is in hand, that may be involved in such fouls. If such a foul is accidental, it is a standard foul, but if it is intentional, it is 6.16 Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

What are 10 rules for basketball?

1) You need to score more points than the other team by shooting the ball through the basket in either 4 quarters or 2 halves. 2) You can't walk with the ball - you need to dribble it to move with it. This is called a travel. 3) You can't pick up the ball after dribbling it and dribble it again. (This is called a double dribble.) 4) You have to stay within the out-of-bounds lines when you have the ball. If you don't, this is called out-of-bounds. You also can't go back over the half court line once you've crossed it; it becomes a new out-of-bounds line. This would be called over-and-back. 5) You get foul shots if a person from the defense team fouls you while you are shooting. Fouls include hitting the shooter, etc. 6) If you shoot the ball from behind the arc, it is worth three points. 7) In some games, there is a shot clock, which you have to get a shot to hit the rim before the 30-45 seconds runs out. 8) You are allowed 5 fouls individually. Once you get more than five, you fouled out, and you aren't allowed to play for the rest of the game. 9) As a team, you are allowed 7 fouls a half, before the other team gets foul shots, whether its a shooting or non-shooting foul. 10) You have to have good sportsmanship. If you don't, the referee can call a technical foul and the other team gets two foul shots and the ball, and you are out.
