Foul shot or penalty shot


Explanation:
Obviously, this all depends on the type of sport. In basketball, they talk about "foul shots" (most of the time) with the player standing at the foul line and throwing the ball to the basket. There are times that in basketball, there is also talk of a "penalty shot" when the team has exceeded five light non-shooting fouls; starting with the sixth, there is a "penalty shot". Confusing?

agree  labog: If bb then "free throw" is also used. A fouled (depending on the type of foul) player may "shoot a free throw".
