Sports Head Basketball

[Total: 1450   Average: 4.4/5]

A modern day Sports Head Basketball game has two teams consisting of five players each. What this means is that there is a maximum of ten players allowed on the court at one time. Some substitutes can come in on dead ball plays. The game begins with a tip-off. A tip off is where the referee or official will throw the ball straight up at the center of the court and the tallest player from each team will try to tip it to their teammates.

Once a person comes into possession with the ball, he/she must dribble the ball. The next item to be discussed is the proper technique for shooting the basketball. You want to be as close to the basket as possible because it will be easier to make the shot. There are two point shots which are inside an arch, and there are three point shots which can be done from outside the arch. I have always been taught an acronym for shooting the basketball: BEEF. B stands for balance, E stands for eyes on the target (hoop), E stands for an elbow, and F stands for follow through. To have an effective shot, you want to be well balanced with your knees bent. You also to make sure your eyes are always on the target so that you can aim the ball. It will allow your shot to go where you want it to go.

The next important thing to discuss is fouling. Any disruptive physical contact will be penalized by a foul. The main four you should know are personal, offensive, technical, and flagrant. Personal and offensive are regular fouls that occur in a Sports Head Basketball game.

There exist five different positions on the floor. They are the point guard, shooting a guard, forward, power forward, and center. A point guard tends to have superior dribbling and passing skills. He also tends to have exceptional speed and control. Point guards run the whole offense. A shooting guard is just what it sounds. Their job is to get open and be able to make a lot of shots. Both types of guards are usually shorter individuals. Forwards are taller people that can muscle their way to the basket and make short range shots and fight for rebounds. The center is there just to place the ball in the basket and jump for rebounds.
