Basket

(Sport: Basketball)

Definition

The orange hoop through which the ball must go for a player to score. A net underneath slows the ball, to confirm that the ball has indeed passed through the hoop. The net is made of white cord hanging from small metal rings. A basket is also the name given to the score awarded for putting the ball through the hoop, worth two points on most shots.
