Typically, there are five (5) main positions: two guards, two forwards, and a center. By rule, there is nothing that any one of these positions can do that the others cannot. But they all have traditional "roles" which they usually adhere to. They are listed below. However, note that many basketb…all coaches tend to simplify their offense by starting five players who are either wings or posts. Posts play around the basket, and usually get the ball when they're already in a position to score. Wings are ball-handlers with a better outside shooting ability, usually, or at least have the skill to take their defender off the dribble and get to the basket for a closer shot. Point Guard . Generally the shortest and fastest players in the team. They are often the best at dribbling and therefore they are often called upon to bring the ball up the court on offense while the rest of the players get into their positions. They are often the leader on the floor, calling out plays, and controlling the tempo of the game. They have the ball in their hands the most out of any position. . Point Guards are usually the shortest players. They have excellent dribbling and usually play point and on the wings. Should be a good passer and a very good dribbler. Able to use both hands evenly. Cannot be selfish. Sets up the offense. . They aren't always the smallest- Note, Michael Jordan was a guard and he was 6 feet 6 inches tall and he played the point guard position sometimes . Point guards are usually the ones that handle the ball. They bring it up and down the court and call the plays. They are essentially the quarterback of basketball. . There are two distinctly different point guards: those who are score-first, pass-second and those who are pass-first and score-second. Allen Iverson is the score-first point guard, while Steve Nash is the pass-first point guard. . Examples of a point guard: Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Chris Paul, Mike Bibby Shooting Guard . Usually taller than the point guard. Often these players are the best shooters from longer distances. They are also expected to be very fast and need to be able to dribble well. . The back-up ball handler, usually better shooters (hence the name). . The job of the shooting guard is to get open and find a shot or find another open player to keep the ball moving. . Usually one of three types of shooting guards: The cutter and slasher, who gets dunks and layups for most of the points; The scorer, who can score in so many ways, often takes tough and contested shots; and the shooter, who love to hit jump shots. Examples of each: Kobe is a scorer, Ronnie Brewer is a slasher, and J.J. Redick is the shooter. . Example of a shooting guard: Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Tracy McGrady, J.J. Redick Small Forward . Vary in mold. Taller than shooting guards but not as big as power forwards, these players are often very versatile, and can either shoot well from long range or get near the basket and get rebounds, etc. . Forwards are some of smallest players on the team. Usually plays around the wing or corner and usually drives along the baseline. Should be a solid rebounder. A good runner. A hard driver and a good passer. . Very much like shooting guard, usually starts lower on court. . Example of a small forward: LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Larry Bird Power Forward . The next biggest player. They traditionally do not stray out and shoot long shots but play near the painted area and by the basket, trying for short-range shots and layups. Good power forwards are also very good at rebounding. Recently in the NBA many power forwards have emerged and can shoot three pointers very well. . Forwards fight under the net to get open for an easy lay up. They are post players and are usually taller than the guards. . Usually larger players (hence the name); starts low with small forward. . Example of a power forward: Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett Center (Centre) . Usually the tallest and slowest players on the team. Their primary jobs are to get rebounds and score points when close the basket. They are rarely expected to dribble the ball much nor shoot from more than 15 feet away. Some centers are very dominant at scoring from in close while many others only score a handful of points per game. The best players at blocking shots on defense are often centers. . The center stays around the paint, which is the colored part of the floor around the basket. Should be a solid rebounder and a good inside shooter. . The center has to be able to move around and help move the ball and occasionally shoot. For the most part they are very helpful on defense. . The center is the biggest or strongest player, and is usually interchangeable with power forward. . Example of a center: Shaquille O'Neal. . Player positions can also be referred to by numbers: the point guard(pg) is the 1, the shooting guard(sg) is the 2 guard, the small forward(sf) is the 3, the power forward(pf)is the 4 and the center(c) is the 5.

Answer . \nFirst of all, you need a basketball of course. You need one with good air pressure, but one that is not too compressed.\n. \nYou need to decide what kind of goal system you are looking for, e.i. moving, permanant, ect. \n. \nThen you must have a good floor. You can use any type of p…avement, but the healthiest for running and stopping abruptly is a slick polished wood. It is the easiest on the knees. \n. \nNext you need a backboard. Something the basketball will bounce off of to make it into the goal, plastic works best.\n. \nYou need a metal rim, metal so that if someone intends to swing from it, they will not break it off, immediately anyway.\n. \nYou need a net, the material used for the net is usually not that important, you just dont want your basketball to get stuck.\n. \nLast, you need a scorebaord. Something to keep track of score on. Something related to a football scoreboard.. ( Full Answer )

The most unbelievable comeback I ever saw was the North Carolina vs. Duke game, March 2, 1974. Carolina was down by 8 points with just 17 seconds to go in the game and came back to win. And by the way, this was before there was a 3 point shot or shot clock in college. Another incredible comeback wa…s the little-known Barton College vs. Winona State game on March 24, 2007. That Carolina-Duke game was awesome, but Barton-Winona's was compelling on myriad levels: Barton was playing in its first national championship ever against the defending national champion, Winona, which had eliminated Barton in the Elite Eight the year before. On top of that, Barton's Anthony "Ant" Atkinson had, after being kicked off the Campbell University basketball team in 2006 for academic issues, returned to his hometown of Wilson, NC, enrolled at Barton and said he was going to win a national championship for his hometown team. Barton trailed 74-67 with 45 seconds left. Atkinson then scored 10 points in the final 39 seconds, including the game-winning layup with one-tenth of a second left on the clock. The comeback was nominated for an ESPY in the "Best Finish" category and named the "second best storybook ending of the past 25 years" by NCAA Champion magazine. Today Atkinson is a fan favorite with the Harlem Globetrotters. ( Full Answer )

When Lew Alcindor came into the NCAA he was able to absolutely dominate games with the dunk. The NCAA decided to ban the slam dunk in an effort to neutralize the effectiveness of Alcindor. The rule was not set in place to prohibit Alcindor singularly, but rather to level the playing field so that te…ams that had a big man that could dun couldn't dominate their smaller stature opponents. Once there were more athletes who could dunk coming into the NCAA the rule was lifted, as it no longer served the purpose of leveling the playing field. ( Full Answer )
