You play basketball by starting off with a basketball. You then wait for the clock to start the game. You then try to keep the ball on your side. You have to keep your eye on the players and be hopefull that you make the shot. Now you only have two fifteen min halves and five min to rest so you beter not wear your self out!!!
With 5 players on a side, the goal is to put the ball through a hoop which is at either end of the court, 10 feet above the floor.
