Olympic Basketball - Rules for Basketball

Basketball games are played in four quarters of 10 (FIBA) or 12 minutes (NBA). College games use two 20-minute halves, while high school varsity games use 8 minute quarters. 15 minutes are allowed for a half-time break under FIBA, NBA, and NCAA rules and 10 minutes in high school. Teams exchange baskets for the second half. The time allowed is actual playing time; the clock is stopped while the play is not active. Five players from each team may be on the court at one time. Teams also have a coach, who oversees the development and strategies of the team, and other team personnel such as assistant coaches, managers, statisticians, doctors and trainers. For both men's and women's teams, a standard uniform consists of a pair of shorts and a jersey with a clearly visible number, unique within the team, printed on both the front and back. Players wear high-top sneakers that provide extra ankle support.

Basketball was first showcased in the 1936 Olympic in Berlin, Germany. 2012 London Olympic will witness one of the world’s most popular team sports being played at the Basketball Arena and North Greenwich Arena. Olympic Basketball competition will be held from Saturday 28 July to Sunday 12 August, 2012. Basketball fans grab your Olympic Basketball Tickets from Sport Ticket Exchange.
