How does basketball overtime strategy differ from regulation?


This is certainly situation based upon fouls(team and individual), pace of play, opposing schemes(offensively and defensively), etc.

Defensively, the strategy is to become more aggressive and force the opposing players into bad positions. Players are more tired in overtime so their shots are not as crisp and as clean compared to regulation so defense become a little bit 'easier'. There are a limited number of possessions in overtime, so defensively, you are trying to force a turnover or the worst possible shot, typically with a hand in the face. Little lapses in overtime turn into win or lose situations.

Offensively, teams become a lot more patient. Less shots are forced and less drives are put into double teams. This is wear a superior ball handler takes games over or a sound offensive scheme becomes more important. There are limited number of elite ball handlers at every level so the system being run is important. I always find I would rather have my players run off...

3 on 3 is still fairly new to the NHL, so I would imagine strategy is still well in development - teams have played tens of minutes at most of 3 on 3 outside of practice.

However, from the rest of the world, 3 on 3 is fairly common in lower level games, and some of the strategy there clearly makes it to the NHL game. Most of the differences arise from the larger spaces on the ice, and higher relevance of each individual player.

Triangle formation on defense: This is the same as the 5 on 3 defense, really. One guy between each faceoff circle and the goal, and then the third 'point' around mid-ice in your zone. Cuts off passing lanes very effectively. Triangle formation on offense: Basically the same as the defense's triangle. One guy back, two guys forward. When a shot happens, whomever is on the opposite side needs to crash the net hard when that occurs to get the rebound. One defender and two forwards: This is somewhat of a result of the triangle formation, but it's a...

The rules of basketball, thankfully, are fairly straightforward. However, for the younger players, some rules can be easily forgotten. The three-second rule addressing how long an offensive player can be in the key before clearing out is a good example.

The following are what come to mind:

• Unlike in Basketball, in Netball you cannot run or dribble the ball. You have to keep your feet planted (though you can pivot) once the ball is in your hands.

• In Netball, you can't make contact with other players. Nor can you grab the ball off them.

• In Netball, there are fixed positions and each position has its limits. For example, Goal Shooter (or GS) is only allowed in the ring and the goal third.

• In conjunction with Dot point 2, a player cannot stand closer than three feet to the one she's defending. Even if she doesn't make contact, the penalty of standing next to the opposition and not being allowed to defend will apply.

When you start playing netball, you start recognising it as a much different sport from basketball. But I wouldn't be surprised if netball started off as a modification of...

The rules of basketball are the rules and regulations that govern the play, officiating, equipment and procedures of basketball. While many of the basic rules are uniform throughout the world, variations do exist. Most leagues or governing bodies in North America, the most important of which are the National Basketball Association and NCAA, formulate their own rules. In addition, the Technical Commission of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) determines rules for international play; most leagues outside North America use the complete FIBA ruleset.

Original rules

In January 15, 1892, James Naismith published his rules for the game of "Basket Ball" that he invented:[1] The original game played under these rules was quite different from the one played today as there was no dribbling, dunking, three-pointers, or shot clock, and goal tending was legal.

The ball may be thrown in any direction with one or both hands. The ball may be batted in any direction...

Think of basketball and names like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, and many others come to mind. These men have elevated basketball from merely just a sport to a national craze! Today, it is one of the most watched and played sports in the United States, played at all levels from school, college to professional NBA. It was invented by

Dr. James Naismith

, in 1891, as an indoor game.

The objective of this game is quite simple. Try putting the ball in the basket opposite yours, and prevent the other team from scoring one. However, as easy as it sounds, it does involve some rules and regulations that must be followed while playing this fast-paced game. Here's how you play the game.

General Rules

According to the NBA rules, basketball is played on a rectangular maple wood court measuring 94 feet by 50 feet. The objective of the game is to throw the ball through a circular hoop as many times as possible. The hoop is situated 10 feet above the court...

Here are the overtime rules for the NFL and the NCAA Football

In the NFL's regular season, if a game is tied at the end of regulation, it goes into Overtime. The visiting team gets to choose heads or tails for the coin toss. They play another 15:00 minute period. The first team to score (Whether by TD, field goal, or safety. Doesn't matter), automatically wins the game. If no team has scored by the end of the Overtime period, the game is deemed a tie. This is a rare occurrence.

In the NFL's post season games (Playoffs and Super Bowl), the rules are the same as the regular season, except once the 15:00 minute overtime period runs out, they start another 15:00 Overtime period. It should be noted that no Super Bowl has ever gone into Overtime. The longest NFL game was between the Miami Dolphins and the Kansas City Chiefs on December 25, 1971. The Miami Dolphins kicker Garo Yepremian kicked the game winning field goal 7 minutes and 40 seconds into double...

Have you got game when it comes to basketball knowledge? Many people know how to play the sport. Only a few know about the fascinating history behind basketball. Within a century of being invented by Dr. James Naismith, basketball grew into one of the world’s most popular sports.

Challenge yourself and friends with this trivia and see where your basketball knowledge ranks:

What equipment did early basketball games use?

When Naismith invented basketball in 1891, players passed around a soccer ball, which was then thrown into a peach basket. The basket had a bottom, so the ball had to manually be retrieved from inside the basket after each field goal.

What are the measurements for a regulation-sized basket used in basketball?

A steel rim, measuring 18 inches in diameter, with an attached net is affixed to a backboard that measures 6 feet by 3.5 feet. The top of the rim is exactly 10 feet above the court and 4 feet from the baseline.

Basketball has come a long way since its creation in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith in Springfield, Massachusetts. It has become a global phenomenon with millions of individuals playing the game at the professional, collegiate, high school and recreational levels. Before trying your hand at basketball, take the time to learn about its rules, regulations and mechanics.

Five players are assigned to opposing teams, with each team made up of a point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and center. Point guards are generally the smallest and quickest players on the floor and are the primary ball handlers and facilitators in the offense. Shooting guards and small forwards are average-sized players and are commonly referred to as "wings." They do a bit of everything, such as scoring from the inside and outside, distributing, ball handling and rebounding. Power forwards and centers are the "big men" on the court who primarily score...

According to an article in 2005 by CFO Publishing, regulation, whether it's through a government or in the form of self-regulation, shapes a business’ structure and conduct in its industry. Price regulation would impact the business’s profits. To avoid a decrease in your profits, you must formulate a pricing strategy that considers any regulation. It will affect the pricing strategy of your business’s products in different ways.

Restricted Pricing Strategies

Regulations may restrict businesses from trying out certain pricing strategies. For example, it is illegal for you to practice predatory pricing in which you deliberately set the lowest market price for your products. This can occur in jurisdictions where there are government regulations that set price ceilings, including how low or high the prices of products can be set. Ignoring the regulation can cause legal problems for your enterprise, which could dent you financially.

The Obama administration is about to boost pay for about 5 million low income workers after announcing changes to how US employers determine who gets overtime.

Currently, those who are paid $455 or less a week qualify for overtime. Thanks to Obama, that threshold will be raised to $970 a week by 2016. Employees who work more than 40 hours a week qualify for overtime pay, which is 1.5 times their normal wage. There is no limit on how many hours US workers can work – except for the one imposed by nature, as there are 168 hours in a week.

So how does US overtime policy compare to the rest of the world? Surprisingly, China does better by its workers on overtime than the UK and US do.


Under a rule similar to those in the US, employees should not work more than eight hours a day or 40 hours a week. If employees do work overtime, they must be paid 1.5 times their wage. Additionally, high-ranking managers do not have to be paid...

Key Elements of the New Regulation that HR Needs to Know Now:

1. Salary Threshold Changed to $913/week ($47,476 per Year)
This threshold doubles the current salary threshold level. While this level is slightly lower than the threshold in the proposed rule, it still encompasses many employees that are currently classified as exempt. SHRM was disappointed that DOL did not offer a more reasonable increase and set the threshold, as it has in the past, at a level designed to encompass those employees that are clearly not engaged in exempt-type work.

2. Automatic Salary Threshold Increases Every 3 Years (Not Annually) to Maintain Level at 40th Percentile in Lowest-Wage Census Region
DOL reduced the frequency of the automatic increases in response to concerns raised by SHRM and others. Instead of annual increases, the threshold will be adjusted every 3 years to maintain the level at the 40th percentile of full-time salaried workers in the lowest-wage Census...
