Starting in early February, basketball is another highly competitive sport with great participation from students. Basketball offers a competitive men's league, a "Good-Times" men's league, and a women's league. The clock runs continuously only stopping for dead balls inside of a minute in the second half of each game.

Basketball Rules

  • Team fouls will be kept - After the 7th team foul it will be a 1 and 1 situation and on the 10th team foul it will be a 2 shot foul
  • To substitute players you must wait at the scorer's table until signaled to enter game
  • Each team will have 1 time out per half
  • Overtime will be 2 minutes - One additional time out will be given
