Video FA1802 – Double Whistle

On this play, a Personal Foul is called against the defensive player (Clear Blue/White-19).
Clear Blue/White-19 pushes Red-13 into the defensive player (Clear Blue/White-4).

Consider this:

Lead Official:
Referee the defense
Does the defender establish an initial legal guarding position?

Trail Official:
As the play moves towards the basket, the Trail official needs to penetrate and referee the play all the way to the basket.
