National College Basketball Day presented by LSIA

 

National College Basketball Day presented by LSIA is designed to celebrate the origin, history, and growth of basketball. 

The invention of basketball by James Naismith in 1891 has brought forth an American tradition which will be honored on the day of its creation, December 21st.  From 13 original rules, basketball has grown from a casual recreational activity into a highly competitive sport that is played around the world.  Most people do not know how the game began, therefore it is important to bring attention to the origin and history of the sport. This event will honor the growth and popularity of basketball that we enjoy today. 

Through National College Basketball Day presented by LSIA, we hope to reach individuals and teams throughout the country and embrace the beloved sport of basketball.
