The aim is to throw the ball through the basket of the other team and stop the other team from doing the same to you.
Each team has five players on the court.
If a player stops dribbling the ball and continues moving, he/she commits a violation called “travelling”.
If a player is too aggressive, the referee may call a “foul”. The opposite team gets a “free throw”.
In the event of a draw, teams play extra time to decide the winner.
