It was actually at Springfield College (where Miss Goodman, Mrs. Hendry and Miss Warren all went to college).- At first, a peach basket was used instead of a rim and net. A ladder was used to get the ball out after each basket was scored. This is why it is called "basket"ball.- The game was very slow paced. There was no dribbling in the game until the 1950's. The ball was a different size and shape. Originally played with a scooer ball. Ball was oval shaped and dark brown so it was also hard to see.- Professional sport with the NBA for the men (National Basketball Association) and the WNBS for the women (Women's National Basketball Association).Basketball Skill Cues and Definitions
