• Point Guard: primary ball handler and distributor that sets the offensive plays for the team and is usually a good defender.
• Shooting Guard: This player is usually a scorer and a secondary ball handler.
• Small Forward: A small forward is typically a versatile player that can do a little bit of everything on the court.
• Power Forward: This is usually a taller player that can rebound and defend and may be able to stretch the floor and shoot, or score from the post.
• Center: A center is typically the tallest player on the team who protects the basket and scores close to the basket.
