Womens basketball has the same positions and rules as mens basketball. Guard, forward, center etc..
The three basketball positions normally employed by organized basketball teams are the guards, forwards, and the center. More specifically, they can be classified into the five positions: point guard (PG), shooting guard (SG), small forward (SF), power forward (PF), and center (C). The rules of basketball do not mandate them, and in informal games they are sometimes not used.
go to google
center/forward - it stands for two positions
players game positions
2 Guards, 2 Forwards, 1 Center
All positions play defense. If not all positions played defense, someone would always be open.
A typical basketball team has at least 5 members because 5 people are needed to be on the court to play the 5 positions.
