Blocking, RA play, defender's foot is on the arc line
This is an example of a defensive foul for blocking while in the Restricted Area. The Restricted Area is the area within the arched line on the court below the rim. To be considered legal and to draw an offensive foul, a secondary defensive player must have both feet established completely outside the Restricted Area line. On this play, the secondary defender’s heels are raised above the Restricted Area arc. Even though his toes are touching the floor outside the arc, this “heels raised” position above the restricted area arc line is not legal, and thus, this is a restricted area blocking foul.
