What is basketball theory?

Basically, on offense, you have to dribble the ball down to your side of the court and find a way to get the ball down to the goal and shoot and make it in the basket. On defense, you have to stop the other team from shooting the ball into the basket. If you steal the ball you go back to what I told you to do on offense.

What is affense is soccer?

Did you mean offense? You are on offense when your team has the ball. The goal, when on offense, is to take the ball down the field and score a goal. The opposite of offense would be defense. You are on defense when the opposing team has the ball. The goal when on defense is to prevent the other team from scoring a goal. Hope this helped.

What are some Differences between baseball and basketball?

Baseball has 9 players per side, a small ball thrown across a "plate" has to be hit by one opposing player with a "bat" who then runs counterclockwise to the corners of a diamond shaped group of "bases". The player scores 1 point by running to and stepping on the bases and stepping on the last base called "home plate". Basketball has 5 players per side, a larger ball is advanced toward a goal known as a "basket" by bouncing the ball off the floor while moving forward. The players throw the ball or "shoot" it at the basket. If the ball goes through the basket, 2 or 3 points are scored, depending on the distance from the basket. A penalty shot taken from the "free throw" line is worth 1 point. These are only very basic differences explaining the offense part of each game.

What happens directly after a basket is scored What position do the opposite players take Do they have to be a certain distance from the end line so the team can pass the ball?

Directly after a basket is scored, the opposing players (previously on defense) usually run up the court waiting for their Point Guard or 1to bring the ball up the court. Players that are now on defense occasionally pressure or press the offense in hopes of receiving the ball again. Hope it helps,===Zakariye===
