BASKETBALL is a sport that originated in China and has grown increasingly popular in North America and Europe over the years. BASKETBALL is a team game where two teams, most often of five players each, against one another on an circular court, competing with the goal of shooting the ball through the opponents hoop with as few points as possible. Each team is composed of three players who stand at the foul line between the basketballs, the two centers (or benchwarmers) and the two guards. The BASKETBALL competition usually takes place in a swimming pool, gymnasium or sports ground. However it can also be played outdoor on grass or dirt. There is usually a flagpole at the center of the court and the BASKETBALL competition usually follows the same pattern of play.
BASKETBALL matches are generally played with two fouls being given per half. When a player receives a foul with ten seconds remaining in the quarter, he will be forced to leave the ball where his team entered the game and start on the bench or the court where his teammates will form the line up to continue the play. The winner is the player who scores the most points during the remaining half. If the game has no points after the second half, then the winner is the team with the most total points.
BASKETBALL matches can be played with two teams sitting side by side on one court or with two teams sitting on opposite sides of a single court. In a match with two teams sitting together on one court, players sit on both ends of the double row with their teammates either side behind them or in front of them. Basketballs are then thrown over the net from one end of the double row to the other. The two teams playing on opposite sides of the court take turns drawing the basketballs over to their side of the court, or vice versa. This continues until one team has used all its playing time and run out of time.
There are two types of BASKETBALL: the half court shot and the three-point shot. BASKETBALL consists of twelve players on each team. Each player can rotate in any direction that is appropriate and shoots the ball three feet in any direction. BASKETBALL is played on an indoor court and requires good court design, flooring that is firm and adequate foul management and good teamwork. A well-designed court will make for a more enjoyable game of BASKETBALL.
Shooting starts at the free throw line and ends at the half court line. BASKETBALL starts with a four-on-four drill where players must hit at least three field goals in a row from the free throw line to the mid-court line. Then each player must complete five more field goals from the mid-court line to the basket. For teams that are tied or following a losing streak, there may be extra scoring opportunities at the half court line and on the break.
BASKETBALL has evolved into a strong sport that incorporates aspects of many different sports. It is a great way to improve ball handling skills, ball control, rebounding, defense, and overall fitness. BASKETBALL is also a fun sport to play, and players usually come together to play when they have a good chance to win. That’s why teams often gather to play basketball and have a chance to show off their skills.
