What is the most played college basketball rivalry?

User Avatar
The most contested rivalry in division I men's basketball is between Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. It was played 331 times before the conclusion of the 2009 season. The series has been played so often because of the close proximity of the campuses (45 miles), the relative isolation from other potential opponents in the days before long distance travel was common, and the long histories of each program (they first played one another in 1903). In fact, the six most played series in college basketball are all contests between Pacific Northwest schools: 1. Oregon State vs. Oregon, 331 games 2. Oregon vs. Washington, 284 games 3. Oregon State vs. Washington, 283 games 4. Oregon State. vs. Washington State, 278 games 5. Oregon vs. Washington State, 276 games 6. Washington vs. Washington State, 267 games 7. Kansas vs. Kansas State, 266 games Source: NCAA Division I Men's basketball records. web1.ncaa.org/web_files/stats/m_basketball_RB/2010/D1.pdf

Can you serve the ball down in ping pong?

User Avatar
No when a ball is served the ball must bounce and then be hit not be hit and then bounce ================================================================ Not sure what you mean by serving the ball "down". However, below is the official competition rule for serving as per the USA TABLE TENNIS, a member of the ITTF (INTERNATIONAL TABLE TENNIS FEDERATION. 2.6 A GOOD SERVICE 2.6.1 Service shall start with the ball resting freely on the open palm of the server's stationary free hand. 2.6.2 The server shall then project the ball near vertically upwards, without imparting spin, so that it rises at least 16cm after leaving the palm of the free hand and then falls without touching anything before being struck. 2.6.3 As the ball is falling the server shall strike it so that it touches first his court and then, after passing over or around the net assembly, touches directly the receiver's court; in doubles, the ball shall touch successively the right half court of server and receiver. 2.6.4 From the start of service until it is struck, the ball shall be above the level of the playing surface and behind the server's end line, and it shall not be hidden from the receiver by any part of the body or clothing of the server or his doubles partner; as soon as the ball has been projected, the server's free arm shall be removed from the space between the server's body and the net. TABLE TENNIS...a lifetime sport.
Asked in San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, Sports Rivalries

Are the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders Rivals?

User Avatar
Yes. Although they play in different conferences, they are located very close to each other. In fact it is less than 12 miles across the Bay Bridge that separates the two cities. While San Francisco is in the National Football Conference and Oakland is in the American Football Conference, both teams are in the National Football League. Even though most NFL games are played between conference members, but there are games where teams from different conferences are matched up as opponents. From 1970 to 2010, the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders have played each other 12 times. Their series is evenly split with each team having six wins and six losses.
Asked in Sports Rivalries

What is the color for rivalry?

User Avatar
A color that could represent rivalry or some sort of blood-feud could be a maroon or dark red. It would be a mixture of red and black. Red symbolizes passion or blood, and black symbolizes evil, anger, and remorse. A mixture of the 2 colors would result in a passion for evil, or the seeking of vengeance, thus resulting in a dark red or maroon color.

Asked in Track and Field, Jackie Robinson, Sports Rivalries

How was Jackie Robinson an influence?

User Avatar
He became the first black man to play in the Major League Baseball. Yes, but he was more of an influence to the desegregation of Major League baseball by not retaliating to the jeers and insults that were directed to him by other players and fans. His resolute stance of silence enabled him to overcome the opposition. The opponents of desegregation finally realized they could not get under his skin. Moreover, Robinson's stellar performance on the field (at both 2nd and 3rd and later in his career at 1st base) plus his hitting ability made him a star player for 10 years with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
