Modern day basketball can be traced back to early December 1891 when Dr. James Naismith, a Canadian PE teacher and a local instructor in Springfield, Massachusetts. The YMCA Training School was looking for an indoor game that was fit for the cool, snowy New England site. After trying to find a variety of games and find it dangerous or not fit for my gym, Naismith described the essential rules of basketball, which include some of the rules of playing folk children, "Ducks on a Pond," followed by a peach basket on a sloping leveled at ten meters above the playing surface. Of course, since the peach baskets were still closed, a ball was found after a player was in the basket, he was extremely ineffective – incredibly, the game had to be stopped for someone to spin the ball. And although the first official game was played in January 1892, YMCA gymnasium Naismith's handwritten diary at that time indicated that it was extremely nervous about the new game invented, fearing that basketball would not use it.
Strangely, in the first official basketball game, nine players played on the side and the winning team won a tight 1-0 battle with a 25-foot shot – a court that was barely half the modern day court! 1897 five-year team became standard. At the same time, women's basketball was developed at the nearby Smith College when Sandra Berenson, a college dormitory teacher, changed the multitude of rules for women. As it turned out, Berenson was fascinated by the values of teamwork, fair play, and vigorous training that were promoted by basketball and began organizing the first women's basketball games by 1893. In 1899, Berenson's rules published women's basketball and at the turn of the century was the editor of AG Spaulding's legendary Ladies Basketball Handbook, who has distributed basketball variations nationwide to a whole range of physical education courses nationwide.
It's a fact that many YMCA instructors have supported basketball in the United States and Canada and have prepared the game in many high schools as a general sport. Unfortunately (and perhaps ironically) YMCA began to kick basketball in 1905, fearing that the fighting masses and the rough game diverted the organization's mission. But that did not matter much as amateur clubs, colleges, high schools, and some short-lived professional basketball clubs and leagues did not only fill the emptiness but also fostered the game. Basketball became increasingly popular with the predecessor of NCAA, the United States Intercollegiate Athletic Association and the Amateur Athletic Union fought for the rules of the game and the future of the future.
It is a little known fact that in the first decades basketball was played mainly by football balls that were difficult. Most games straight to the players giving the ball to each other to move forward and back in court. It was not as long as a ball was specifically designed and made for basketball, and often basketballs were arranged irregularly, creating a strange scene for modern basketball fans. Only until the end of the 1940s when college basketball dazzled its popularity and viability in order to promote the popularity of the National Basketball Association that Tony Hinkle developed the orange basketball that fans are so familiar with. Of course, we should not forget that Naismith was influential in promoting and creating male basketball when he became Kansas University. the first basketball team. And incredibly many Naismith's first students and students played an important role in the history of college basketball, including Amos Alonzo Stagg, Forrest "Phog" Allen, and Adolph Rupp.
