    If someone hits a free throw, but their teammate is whistled for a lane violation, is that person credited with a missed free throw or does the attempt simply not count?

    I think it simply doesn't count as an attempt

    Had a situation like this a couple years ago. Gave the guy no attempt after talking with an official.

    According to NCAA, free throw doesn't count, and no attempt is given to the shooter. The player who is charged with the lane violation is also charged with a turnover.

    This is also true if it is the shooter who commits the lane violation by stepping on/over the free-throw line. No free throw attempt, and a turnover to the shooter.

    Just to go deeper, if it is a lane violation on both teams, there is no free throw attempt, and possession is dtermined by the possession arrow. If the shooting team retains possession, no turnover is charged to anyone. If the non-shooting team gets the ball, there is a change in possession, and a turnover is charged to the shooting-team player who committed the violation.

    Hope this helped.
