During the first half of the game, the visiting team chooses the basket they want when they take the court. At half time, they always switch which basket they attack. This is the same for the NBA, the WNBA, and College Basketball.

The basket selected by the visiting team when it first enters onto the court shall be its basket for the first half.

At the beginning of the first quarter, the home team's basket (the one they have to play defense on) is always to the right. The one they have to score on is to the left. They switch baskets after the second quarter (halftime).
