Basketball Team sport

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender's hoop while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one or more one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play (overtime) is mandated.

Emmerich Manual High School is a public high school in Indianapolis, USA. It was a traditional high school in the Indianapolis Public Schools district. Now the school is run by the state of Indiana.

Pike High School is a public high school on the northwest side of Indianapolis, Indiana.
