Basketball covers the epidemiology of basketball injury, the physiological demands of basketball, preventive medicine, pre-participation examination and special considerations to be given to the young basketball player, and finally looks at the 'special' basketball player -- diabetics, asthmatics, epileptics, etc.The length of a basketball game is dependent upon the league. ... Collegiate basketball games are played with two 20-minute halves, and professional basketball games (i.e., NBA) are played with ... a high intensity (i.e., fast transition from defense to offense) or at a low intensity (i.e., slow deliberate half court style) of play.
