Offensive teamwork intensity as a factor influencing the result in basketball.
Abstract:The aim of this study was to determin the intensity index of the offensive teamwork. Under observation for this research was the Tallinn University basketball team, that takes part in the championships of the 1. Estonian league. The data was gathered from 600 ball possessions of 8 recorded regular season games. This research has helped to work out the basics of the analytical system of the teamwork aspect. The analysing system of the competition activity of the game, which we have worked out, enables to determine the structure and intensity of the technical and tactical development, and to find interesting models of game activity from the data. On the basis of the received information, the coach can evaluate the activity of the team, find more convenient time laps in the game performance, corrigate the strategy for future games. The analysing system worked out through that, helps to improve the quality of the game.
Based on the results of working through the statistical data (T-test, F-test), it was concluded that the average time of successful offence ball possession in the offensive zone (t = 8,75), the number of elements (6,76) and the teamwork intensity index in the offensive zone (0,86) is statistically significantly different from non successful (accordingly t = 10,13; number of elements - 7,52; index - 0,78).
