Abstract | Full Text

The aim of the present paper is to value the offensive efficacy for the basketball of a semiprofessional team during the season 2010-2011 of the league EBA (GE). A total of 12 matches were observed: 8 playing outside and 4 in the own field. We use for the record the software LINCE V.1.1. and the observational system was (SOBL-3). The results obtained by means of descriptive statistics and the sequential analysis of T-patterns using THEME 5.0 software show that the attacking play of this basketball team is more likely to end with an unstructured move, and that regardless of the opposing team’s defence it is these unplanned strategies which are the most effective.
