NCAA is college basketball. College basketball has 2 20-minutes halves (no quarters.) High school basketball has 4 8-minute quarters. NBA (professional basketball) has 4 12-minute quarters.
They have quarters instead of halfs and the shot clock is smaller or there is no shot clock at all. Three point line is closer in high school.
In college basketball there are halves that are 20 minutes long In high school basketball there are quarters that are 8 minutes long In NBA there are quarters that are 12 minutes long
College basketball is played in halves, with 20 minutes per half. Only high school and NBA play quarters.
4 quarters are in a high school basketball game
4 quarters of basketball at the high school. Eight minutes each.
There are four quarters in middle school basketball. A "quarter", by definition is one fourth of the whole. So, there are four quarters in the game.
middle school and high school are both 4 8 min quarters, college is 2 20 min half, and the NBA is 4 12 min quarters
because they can
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?
