Basketball was a sport developed on Earth during the 19th century. It involved two teams competing against each other by attempting to get a ball in a basket as many times as possible within the game's time limit.
It was a common fixture in high school and in university although university-level competition had a wide range of competition levels, ranging from beer league-level (KU Leuven) to near-professional-level (University of North Carolina). Dunames Lopez played basketball through university, although she was never considered an elite player at the university level, despite taking part in two EuroBasket Women High School finals back in high school.
