The professional level has 4 quarters. The college level has 2 halves. It's pretty much been like this forever.
Professional basketball (NBA and FIBA) has its games divided into quarters, as do high school ball (at least in my experience). NCAA basketball games are divided into two 20 minute halves, as are many recreational leagues. So, does basketball have quarters? Sometimes.
The NCAA has always had 2 halves instead of 4 quarters. When the professional leagues came into existance, they adopted the "quarters" instead of halves. one of the original rules of basketball as Dr. James Naismith (inventer of basketball) published was for Two 15-minute halves with a 5 minute rest in between.
Basketball still has 4 quarters today. Two halves mean the first and second, and then the third and forth quarter. The first half is the first and second quarter, and the second half is the third and forth. After the second it's half-time, the players take a 20 minute break.
48 minutes. 12 per quarter (4 quarters ) NBA
There are 4 quarters in basketball. Each quarter depends on which level you play on. For example a quarter in the NBA would go on for 10-12 minutes
this question sucks actually not that stupid of a question? they play 4 quarters in high school? only sport that is same in high school yet totally changes in college? of course quarters only 8 minutes in high school and 12 in nba, so no reason they couldn't have 4 - 10 minute quarters in college? games go from 32 minutes in high school to 40 minutes in college to 48 minutes in nba, understand length goes up, but the reason it goes to halves in ncaa instead of quarters? still don't undertand why they cant play 4 - 10 minute quarters? only sport were high school is more like pro`s then college is?

in nba it's 12minute quarters, and there's 4 quarters, so 48minutes. but becasue of the timeouts and breaks, it may go to arounf 1hour or so. but in some children's leagues, it might be 10 minute quarters, again with the timeouts it may be 1hour or so, it depends on country
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.
You have to win the Olympic trials.
4 quarters go into one dollar. So 12 quarters = 3 dollars.
Two quarters go together to make one half.
you have to go to head quarters and then you go around in head quarters a put it in your items box

go on google.com and go to images and search up OLYMPIC RINGS.
Go go go no answer go go
If the olympic games ended they would still do what they are doing like training but they just couldn't go in the olympic games.
Anyone who has an Olympic Trial cut off can go to the olympic trials, however, the top 2 finishers in the finals are the ones who go to the olympics.
