Basketball is a popular sport. There are five players on each team and each team tries to get the basketball in each other's nets. You play this game with a basketball which is a sphere colored orange with black stripes. Basketball is most common in the USA. There are professional teams, college teams, high school, middle and even some elementary school teams. The main thing is to get the ball into the opposing team's hoop by dribbling and shooting with your hands.

There a few different ways you can score. The first is to make a basket within the large that extends past the free throw line. Any shot in this range is worth 2 points. Any shot made outside of the large arc is worth 3 points. If you are fouled while shooting, you may go to the free throw line to earn back your points. Each free throw is worth one point. There are many rules to basketball, and some rules are added in each upcoming year.
