In the beginning of the game two people jump for the ball and try to tip it to the way they are going
In a basketball game, each half time period does not start the same way. The first half starts with a jump ball with the players at center court, although the following quarters simply have the teams rotate possession, and take the ball from out of bounds.
both teams get around the circle in the middle of half court. Each team's center stands in the middle and jumps for the ball - jump ball
the team who did not get the tipoff in the 1st half
In college basketball a half takes 20 minutes on the clock. In high school and in the NBA a half is 24 minutes on the clock made up of two 12 minute periods.
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 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.
