The thrilling game of basketball has an interesting history so you may want to share it with your friends while watching the exciting game with them. The creative mind behind this fascinating game was the physical education instructor at a Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) school. His name was Dr. James Naismith and he conceived this game to make his students exercise in gym during a rainy day of December, 1891. He brought a football and a peach basket and asked his students to play the game. It turned out to be a success so Dr. Naismith gave it serious attention and penned down a list of formal rules. Initially, the peach basket had its bottom intact, but after every basket someone had to take out the ball, which was quite inconvenient so eventually the bottom was removed. Over time, the game went through fine changes such as metal hoops replacing peach baskets and black boards being placed behind the hoops by 1906. The immediately recognizable orange ball of basketball was introduced in the late 1950s.
As college basketball began in a YMCA school, it was initially propagated using its network. The game was quite interesting and novel so it spread rapidly and became especially popular in women’s high schools. Unfortunately, some harsh and rowdy players introduced rough play in the game that was against the healthy spirit, body, and mind principles of YMCA. The esteemed organization stopped supporting basketball so the cause was taken over by amateur sports clubs, colleges, and even professional clubs. This was a fortunate occurrence for the future of the game as it started becoming popular even faster than before when only YMCA was behind it. Moreover, with such a widespread popularity, it started evolving positively. College basketball became regularized with strict rules to thwart rough and rowdy practices.
Colleges were instrumental in making basketball a household name. Now, everyone knows that it is game with hoops and an orange ball. Almost every college in our country has a basketball team, both men’s and women’s. Prospective students gauge a college not only on the basis of its academic programs, but also by looking at its athletics department especially basketball and football teams. College basketball heroes eventually become a part of professional teams and compete on national and international level. The games are extremely thrilling not only because of the nail-biting action but also due to the fact that you are watching the future stars of National Basketball Association (NBA).
The most prestigious organization governing the college basketball teams is called the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). It has divided our country’s college basketball teams into three divisions. Within each division are conferences and each conference contains the actual college teams. The Division 1 is the highest level with bigger colleges that have larger budgets and extensively developed athletics departments.
