People eager to see their favorite team win would sit on the balconies (when basketball used peach baskets as a goal posted to balconies) and use their feet to drive the ball away from the hoop. So I guess once James Naismith got tired of it, backboards were installed.

Backboards are the boards on which the baskets for the sport "basketball" are attached. The backboards are fixed on a frame at the height of 2 meters and 90 centimeters.

The schools usually use the standard backboards for their basketball. The standard backboards for high schools and colleges are usually 72 inch.
