How long is a basketball game?

A basketball game (NBA) is technically only 48 minutes. However, with half-time, timeouts, fouls, and close games, a basketball game is actually around 2 1/2 hours. The game is divided into 4 quarters, each 12 minutes long. Should the score be tied at the end of the fourth quarter, the game will go into a 5 minute overtime period. Should the game be tied at the end of overtime, there will be a 5 minute second overtime, and so on. College basketball games are 40 minutes, with no quarters but instead two 20 minute halves. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the game will proceed into a five minute bonus period called overtime, similar to the NBA.
