Delegation's ranking

Sport presentation

A team sport contested on a rectangular court by two teams of five players. Players attempt to pass a ball through an elevated hoop that is fixed to a backboard 3.05m from the ground. This is known as the basket. Each basket scored is worth two points, with the exception of field goals, which are scored from behind the three-point line (worth 3 points), and free throws, which are awarded after a foul (worth 1 point). Players can only use their hands and advance by dribbling the ball. The team that scores the most points wins the match.
