The Rules of Basketball : The Rules of Basketball Two teams have five players in each team the players score points by putting the ball through a basketball hoop. There are three ways to score points One way is by shooting under the three point line which is there a other way is by shooting behind the three point u score three points The last way is by free throws which is one point Slide 6: If both teams have the same points and the game time is done then you go through overtime which is a additional 5 min but if both teams still have the same points then you go over time again until we have a winner. In the begging of a game you will do something call a jump ball this will happen in the middle of the court which is one tall player in each team will jump for the ball in who gets the ball first will go first Slide 7: There are about a couple of referees could call a foul on a player if they belief that it look like a foul. You could have 6 fouls until you could be fouled out which means you will not to play anymore during the game. There is about 6 fouls in basketball which are called off offensive foul, flagrant foul, defensive foul, technical foul, and a charging foul. Slide 8: If you have two technical fouls you are not playing in the game no more. While you are dribbling the ball you must use one hand not two hands because its called double dribbling and the other team will get the ball. If somebody fouls you shoot free throws twice If you make a shot while being foul then you shoot one free throw but if you make a technical foul your opponents shoots one free throw.
