To overshoot (also called bonus balling, lighting up, or overkilling) is to repeatedly shoot a player after they are eliminated.
Generally, a few extra shots after a successful break is considered overshooting.
The practice is frowned upon by nearly all players.
Bonus player knew the opponent was eliminated but continued to shoot, disregarding the safety of the opposing player.
The penalty for overshooting in tournaments is usually a 2-for-1, the elimination of the guilty player as well as two other players from his or her own team, but each tournament has its own set of rules.
The way I look at it is you are over shooting you should tone your god d**n gun down or take the ramping setting off. It's total BS when it happens, and I have had it happen to me by a 6'3" a*****e up to Lash's.
