“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships!”

Michael Jordan

Have you played basketball for years and want to be challenged, or have you just heard of the game and want to try it out? Whichever one of those you can relate to, LUSV Basketball is for you.

The game

Basketball is a game of two teams with five players in each team. The goal of the game is for one of the teams to score a point by putting the ball in the opponents basket while they try to defend it.

When shots are made, 2 points are awarded, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled is given one, two or three 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 given.

The club

LUSV Basketball is a student-led sports club that caters to both beginners and experienced players. We have multiple men and womens teams and we match you to a team according to your skills level. By joining the club you get to both improve your basketball skills but also to meet new people and have a great time. We pride ourselves on a great balance between playing hard and partying hard(er). Having monthly borrels, after-practice team drinks and organising themed activities between the teams and the club you won’t be bored for sure.

The teams

Currently there are 4 mens teams and 2 womens teams. All of our teams are regulated by the National Basketball Bond (NBB). Each team is associated with a class defined by the NBB. We range from first to fourth league for the men’s teams and second and third for the women’s ones.

Each team trains twice a week and has either “home” or “away” games a couple of times per month.
