College Basketball Restricted Area
BasketballThe sport that conquered the world Eureka! This was the famous exclamation attributed to the Greek mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse, between 287-212 BC, when he found that the volume of any body can be calculated by measuring the volume of water when it is submitted in the same container with water. Eureka means finding, and the term is used as a celebration of a discovery, a finding or order a search.
This expression could have also been used by Canadian teacher James Naismith in 1891, when he received the mission director of Sprinfield College to create a game that could be played in open areas in summer, but also during the winter. At the time, there was a long and cold winter in Massachusetts that made it impossible to practice outdoor sports. The few options for physical activities indoors were restricted to boring fitness classes, which encouraged some students.
So, after much thought, came the long-awaited moment: Eureka! Could have said professor.Chegou the conclusion that the game should have a fixed target, with some degree of difficulty. So, he decided that the target should be 3.05 m tall, held a basket on top of two pilasters. Thus was born the basketball hoop today. The same afternoon, wrote 13 items of the first rules of the sport. Over time, baskets, tables, balls and uniforms were improved until they reach the current standard.
The first official match of the newly created sport was held in the gym Armory Hill, on March 11, 1892, in which students beat the teachers by the score 5-1. But the big moment of glory came when basketball was included in the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Currently, the sport is practiced by over 300 million people worldwide, in more than 170 countries affiliated to FIBA (International Basketball Federation).
