Basketball games are made up of quarters and halves. In the NBA, basketball games have four quarters. In college basketball, there are two halves in a game. Together, these quarters and halves are called regulation.
A halftime show happens during halftime. Halftime shows consist of a form of entertainment like a marching band, cheerleading squad, or dancing team.
After halftime, a jump ball is used to put the ball back into play.
Jump balls take place at the center circle.
We'll learn more about jump balls and how teams put the ball into play in future tutorials.
