    Explanation
    In basketball, a violation refers to an infraction of the rules that does not involve physical contact with another player. This could include traveling, double dribbling, or stepping out of bounds. On the other hand, a foul is a rule violation that involves physical contact with an opponent. This could include pushing, holding, or illegal blocking. Therefore, the statement "You can commit a violation without touching another player but you commit a foul against an opponent" accurately explains the difference between a violation and a foul in basketball.
