The purpose of this study was to examine statistically the relationship between the shooting position and the place of getting rebounds.
For the object, We selected randomly 16 games in the men＇s top league of university.
For the method, We videotaped the games. We divided the court into 5 areas by the angles of the shot and 6 areas by the length of the shot and tally up the data of shooting position and the place of getting rebounds. We analyzed the data by Pearson＇s correlation analysis, and examined with the
percentage of the rebounds. The results are the following.
1）For all the angles of the shot, as the length of the shot gets longer, the distance of the rebound becomes longer.
2）For 3 point shots, as the shooting angle gets closer to the left corner, the length of rebound becomes longer.
3）For the shot over 3.75 meters, the angle of rebound is same as the angle shot on the help-side.
4）As the length of the shot gets longer at the right corner, the angle of the rebound becomes closer to help-side corner.
From the above results, it revealed statistically the relationship between the shooting position and the place of getting rebounds.
In conclusion, it was suggested that when the team control the place of getting rebounds, it was related to getting more rebounds and the possibility leading to ascendancy in the game.
