Dr.Brian Scalabrine a Canadian introduced it by using a peachbasket. But there was no such thing as travelling at first. James Naismith was the inventor of basketball in 1891 inSpringfield, Massachusetts. This is where the sport was born, andwhere you will now find the Basketball Hall of Fame. As At…hletic Director of the YMCA Training School, he had beentasked with inventing an indoor game to keep rowdy athletes busyduring the winter season. The earliest version involved an actualbasket attached permanently to a wall, requiring a ladder to removethe ball after each score. The guy that invented the game of basketball was an American wasNasmith. Not sure about the first name, I think it's Nathanial. It was the physician James Naismith. He thought that there'd beless injuries than in other sports since the basket isn't on thesame level as the players. He actually picked 10 feet because noneof his students could jump that high.

A basketball game (NBA) is technically only 48 minutes. However, with half-time, timeouts, fouls, and close games, a basketball game is actually around 2 1/2 hours. The game is divided into 4 quarters, each 12 minutes long. Should the score be tied at the end of the fourth quarter, the game will …go into a 5 minute overtime period. Should the game be tied at the end of overtime, there will be a 5 minute second overtime, and so on. College basketball games are 40 minutes, with no quarters but instead two 20 minute halves. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the game will proceed into a five minute bonus period called overtime, similar to the NBA. (MORE)

Well in the NBA, where they have four twelve minute quarters. The minutes total is 48 minutes. As for duration, it depends because sometimes the refs will stop the clock for a while. They will stop the clock to look at replays to see if they got the calls right, technical fouls, ejection of players,… plus there can be overtime (OT) if the score is still tied after the 4th quarter. So the duration may end up being at least 2 hours and around 30 minutes or less. (MORE)

That's not necessarily true. If you're asking about middle/high school games, then it's probably just parents being more interested in their boys than their girls (just kidding). There are more opportunities for young boys to get involved in sports than there are for young girls. If you're asking …about college games, it's completely untrue. Many schools have near the same attendance for both sexes. As far as professional basketball, its because of the fact that the NBA is more widely advertised, therefore more popular than the WNBA. Mens games are generally higher scoring and more intense (I do not know why), therefore more enjoyable for most people to watch. (MORE)
The Jump Ball. One player from each team, usually the Center/tallest player, line up at mid-court. the referee tosses the ball up in the air. the two players jump in an attempt to tip the ball to a teammate to gain possession.
There is simply just not enough interest. All woman's sports sports never get as nearly enough attention as mens sports. Video game developers do not wan't to waste money on making a game that will barely sell.

Coaches or players call timeouts for several reasons. One common reason to call a timeout is to change the momentum of the game. If an opposing player is getting in three-pointer after three-pointer, you might want to call a timeout and hope it disrupts his hot streak. Another reason is to substitut…e players in. When you want to substitute a player in, the player won't be able to go in until game play stops. Timeouts can do stop a game. Also, another reason to call a timeout is for the coach to tell the players something he wants to say. For example, a coach might call a timeout to tell the players to stop being weak on defense, or to draw up a play when the game is on the line. (MORE)
