From IBCA Hall of Fame Coach, Bruce Firchau:

 

Do You Know where and when the game of basketball was invented?

 

Dr. James Naismith created the game as a way to help his students stay active during the winter months at Springfield College in Springfield, MA in 1891.  He mounted peach baskets on either ends of the gym and used a leather ball for the first games.
