To foul or not to foul? ESPN consults IMG Academy basketball program coaches

Henry Abbott of True Hoop -- ESPN.com's basketball blog -- raised an age-old question in a recent posting.

Up three points in the closing seconds of a game, do you foul the opponent to keep them from tying the game with a three-pointer?

Abbott went to IMG Academy basketball program director Mike Moreau and coach David Thorpe for answers.

Said Moreau:

"This has to be practiced well before you try to execute it in a game. You have to foul a guy on the dribble, before he can gather. That takes practice. And even then, the execution can get screwed up in the heat of the moment."
