The objective is to get the ball through a hoop mounted high on a backboard on the opponent’s side of the court, while preventing the opponent from shooting it into your team’s hoop. It is a very popular sport worldwide, played with a round and usually orange(orange-brown) ball that bounces. Basketball players mainly use skills such as dribbling, shooting, running, and jumping.
