Two teams of maximum 12 players, with a maximum of five players of each team on the court at any time. If the scores are tied, overtime periods of five minutes will be played until one team has more points than the other at the end of the 5-minute period. The ball may either be passed from one player to another, or dribbled by a player from one point to another bounced while walking or running. Once the team in possession of the ball has passed the half-court line, it may not cross back over the line with the ball.

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.
