Putting The Basketball Into Play
In this chapter we will explore how the game ball is put into play during a basketball game.
What We'll Be Learning
First, we will learn about the concept of a live ball vs. a dead ball in basketball. Next, we will learn about the ways that the ball transitions between this state and is brought back into play.
