It all depends on who got the Basketball at the beginning of the game. Whoever gets the ball after the jump ball also gets it fourth quarter. The other team gets the ball second and third quarter. Hope I answered your question! Good luck!
the team who did not get the tipoff in the 1st half
You sure can, sales stop at the start of the second half.
The team who starts with the ball in the second half is determined by the possession arrow... At the start of the game, whoever does not get possession off the opening tip has the arrow pointed in their favour. Every time there is a "jump-ball" called, the possession arrow indicates who receives possession and is then flipped. The team who has the possession arrow pointing in their favour at half-time will start the second half.
Loser of the tip-off at the start of the game
Team that won the Tip off will start the fourth quarter. The other team will start the 2nd quarter and the beginning of the 2nd half.
There are 4 quarters in basketball. So the first and second quarters are the first half and the third and fourth is the second half.
all but one to the second half
Half time is held at the halfway point in a basketball game. This usually means after second quarter (10 or 12 minutes each, depending on the league), but in US college basketball it is just after the first half (of 20 minutes).
A player of who the ball belongs to.
The team that did not kick off at the start of the game kicks off at the start of the second half. If you win the toss at the beginning of the game and elect to receive that means you will be kicking off in the second half.
DJ doesn't know what he's talking about
You should start pumping a basketball with air when it rebounds less than half the height where you dropped it from.
