The two main defenses used by standard teams are man to man and zone. In man to man, players guard another player from the opposite team. In a zone defense, players guard an area of the court, rather than a player.

The main object in basketball is for each team to get the ball into the hoop at their end of the court, and to prevent the other team from gaining points by getting the ball in the hoop.

No, the term 'basketball team' is a singular compound noun.The noun 'basketball' is functioning as an attributive noun to describe the noun 'team', playing the role of an adjective.A collective noun is a noun used to group people or things in a descriptive way.The standard use of the collective noun 'team' is 'a team of players'.Collective nouns are an informal part of language, any noun that suits the context can function as a collective noun; for example, 'a team of basketball players' or 'a tournament of basketball teams'.

There are many different variations of defenses in basketball, but most derive from the basic man defense or zone defense. During man defense every person on a team is responsible for guarding a specific member of the opposing team. During zone a player is assigned an area of the floor to cover and guards whatever player of the opposing team that enters that area. Many times these vary between half court and full court as well where the defenses are either played against the offense on the entire court or just restricted to the half of the court that the offensive team's basket is on.

basketball team's muses. team is the main concern, since basketball is just describing the type of team. so just pretend it only says team, which is a singular noun, just like you are saying "dog" or "man" or "potato" or something. that makes it easier to see
