Coaches Digest: Why basketball is a 5 on 5 sport ?

Why basketball is a 5 on 5 sport ?
Why we never play just 4 on 4 game or 6 on 6 ? Why it's an impair sport ?

Actually, the first game wasn't 5 on 5. When Dr. Naismith invented the game, the entire court was filled.

There are stories of games with as many as 60 people playing at the same time. The dribble did not exist.

Basketball is a game that slowly evolved into its present form. In the beginning, it more closely resembled indoor soccer - except that it was played by passing with the hands instead of feet.

Women originally played 6 on 6 with with the floor divided in three parts. There were two guards, two forwards and two centers. Guards never shot in the game, and the forwards, could dribble only twice. However, the defense couldn't swipe at the ball unless it was in the lane.

You can see how the position names we use today are based on that early configuration.

Crazy rules, but it produced some outstanding basketball. For more details, go to Granny Basketball where this style is still played today.

Dr. Naismith did not like the eventual 5 on 5 format- he felt it was too much sprinting for individuals and worried that the physical strain was more than a player could handle without serious physical repercussions.

Basketball Statistician Sunday's Digest:
NCAA approves 3 rules changes for men’s basketball

An NCAA committee has approved three rules changes intended to clarify block-charge calls, who can shoot free throws after an injury and the expanded use of replay.

The announcement means secondary defenders must establish position outside the area between the backboard and the front of the rim to draw a charge call. The playing rules oversight panel said in a release that the change was based on surveys, rules forums and the coaches’ desire to reduce the amount of contact occurring underneath the basket.

The panel also addressed the perceived advantage teams can get when a fouled player is injured. Previously, the shooting team’s coach could select any player on his roster to take free throws. Now, the opposing coach must select from the four players remaining on the court.

And the committee approved expanding replay to determine flagrant fouls, which would result in ejection. If the foul is not considered flagrant, officials could still call an intentional foul or a technical foul for contact. It is the only rules change that will apply to men’s and women’s basketball from next season.

The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System is discussing these changes and its statistical registration in the eBA 124 Basketball Statistics Clinic Chat.

Coaches Digest:
About the different leagues and the Alternating Possession Rule

About the different leagues and the Alternating Possession Rule:
FIBA - On all held ball/jump ball situations during the game (including the beginning of most periods), teams alternate receiving the ball ("alternating possession"), with the team not gaining possession of the initial (tossed) jump ball being the first recipient.
- First half begins with a jump ball; alternating possession at the beginning of all other periods.
- The shot clock shall not be reset if the offensive team retains possession of the ball through the alternating process.

NBA - On all held ball/jump ball situations during the game, play resumes with a (tossed) jump ball
- If the offence retains possession after a jump ball, the clock is reset to 14 seconds or remains the same if there were more than 14 seconds on the clock. If the defense gains possession, the clock is reset to 24 seconds.
- First period and any overtime begin with a jump ball; periods 2, 3, and 4 start with possession based on team winning opening tip (2 and 3 to loser of tip, 4 to winner)

WNBA - On all held ball/jump ball situations, play resumes with a (tossed) jump ball
- Each half and overtime period starts with a jump ball.

NCAA Men - On all held ball/jump ball situations during the game (including the start of the second half), teams alternate receiving the ball ("alternating possession"), with the team not gaining possession of the last (tossed) jump ball being the first recipient
- The game and any overtime period start with a jump ball; alternating possession at the beginning of the second half
- If the offensive team retains the ball due to the alternating process, the shot clock shall not be reset.

Rules Corner: Error after a Time-out in the backcourt:

Great Basketball Pictures
"... A1 requests a 60-second time-out in the backcourt. After the time-out is completed, the official mistakenly gives Team B the ball for a sideline throw-in. B1 performs the throw-in to B2 ahead the official perceives the error.
"Correctable Referee's Error" ? Which is the correct ruling and statistical register ? ..."

This is not a correctable error case; the game should go on. Unmistakably, officials should initiate a course of action to keep off this type of error. There are a lot of methods which can be applied, such as holding the ball under the arm that indicates in the direction the ball will go when the game is restarted.

Coach's Digest: Historic FIBA Rules Changes

The FIBA Central Board, the highest executive body of the International Basketball Federation, met on Friday 25th April, and has continued its session yesterday, Saturday 26th April, in Beijing, China. The meeting has been organized in cooperation with the Chinese Basketball Association.

An additional press release containing several important decisions of the FIBA Central Board will be issued in the next hours. However, this morning the Central Board has taken some major and historic decisions as with regards to the game rules.

Indeed, upon recommendation of the FIBA Technical Commission (a group of experts that deal with the game rules), the FIBA Central Board has approved today several amendments to the Official Basketball Rules.

The recommendations by the FIBA Technical Commission and the decisions taken by the Central Board were strived by the attempt to further unify all existing game rules and to have, in the future, only one set of rules for the game of basketball worldwide.

Please find at our eBA Stats Portal a summary of all approved rule changes, which include historic amendments like the extension of the 3-point line (in place since 1984) and the change of the trapezoid restricted area (in place since the 1950s) to a rectangular one.
