Basketball Fun Fact

January 8, 2013
By Morgan Wherry of Thomas Nelson HS



On December 1891, Dr. James Naismith, invented the game of basketball. He wrote the basic rules and nailed a peach basket onto a 10-foot (3.05m) elevated track. The balls had to be retrieved manually after each "basket" or point scored; this proved inefficient, however, so the bottom of the basket was removed.
