In the Alabama game, the Tide got free throws when they shouldn’t have when we committed a charge. We didn’t get free throws during the ECU game when Moussa set that illegal screen when we were already in the bonus. What gives? I know a charge is a player control foul, but I didn’t think illegal screens were. Any of you rules gurus know which kind of fouls are classified as player control fouls (charges, illegal screens, etc)? If the foul is offensive, is it black/white if it’s player control based on the type of foul committed or can the refs use their judgement (or lack thereof)?
I had the same question, and I’m trying to get some rules clarifications.
Rule 10 - Fouls and Penalties. I couldn’t wade through it enough to find out but I’m sure it’s there somewhere.

I’m working on that now.
NCAA Rule 10, Section 23, Article 2, Letter E, No. 3 states that no free throws are to be awarded for a team-control foul, regardless if the team fouled is in the bonus. This is different from the NFHS rule. However, as X stated, one of the 2 officiating crews was wrong, and it appears as if the Alabama crew was wrong.
The officials at the ECU game were only familiar with Church League Rules so it’s understandable they didn’t get it right. Did they mug the real officials in the locker room? The were so inept I hope they had a driver to take them home. They surely can’t control a motor vehicle.
