== == == == There is about as good of a chance as you making it if you practiced for a long time. I know a friend of mine who had almost never touched a Basketball in their life, was a very good athlete, and made the team.

Whether or not you are selected for the team after trying out will depend upon your experience and natural talent. The chances of being selected for the team are much greater if you have experience and have practiced. If you are a beginner and have natural talent, a good coach should be able to take notice of your ability and this will increase your odds of being selected for the team.
