seconds in the game,
Basketball might seem like a simple game, but behind the scenes science plays an important role.
Technology makes keeping track of the game easier with score boards and clocks, while science covers the mass and motion of the players and the ball. Engineering designs the best materials for the ball, shoes, nets, and floors, and math is used to calculate distance, court measurements, and quarters and seconds in the game.
What innovations has basketball undergone since 1890?
When the first basketball games were played there were bottoms on the basketball nets and every time a player scored someone would have to go up on a ladder to retrieve the ball. After a few years, people figured out that there was no need for bottoms on the baskets.
Uniforms and jerseys have changed a lot too. Players did not wear uniforms until the 1920s, which consisted of shorts with padding and wool jerseys. In the 1930s, jersey material was introduced which allowed players to be cooler. Today basketball players wear
sleeveless tops made of jersey material and shorts
with lengthened hemlines.

"The invention of basketball was not an accident, it was developed to meet a need. Those boys simply would not play drop the hanker chief."
