Fun facts about Basketball:
Did you know that the game of Basketball was invented in 1891 by Dr James Naismith? It was not until 1936 that the game of basketball became an official Olympic event.
The two basketball leagues, the National Basketball League and the Basketball Association of America would then merge in 1949 to become what is today the National Basketball Association.
The first games were played using a soccer ball. The first hoops had a bottom, like peach baskets and the referee would have to climb to climb on a ladder and get the ball once a player "scored a goal".
The first inter-collegiate match took place in 1895 between Minnesota State School of Agriculture and the Porkers of Hamline College with Minnesota State School defeating the Porkers. The first Menís College Basketball Championship was held in 1939 with the University of Oregon beating Ohio State.
The first televised college games in 1940. The highest rated college basketball game that was seen on U.S. television was in the 1979 National Collegiate Athletic Association championship game with Michigan State going against Indiana State. Two of the players in that game were Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.
The original 13 rules that Naismith came up for the game of basketball still remain today.
