“basketball should be used as a factor in the molding of character… to produce the following results: initiative, agility, accuracy, alertness, co-operation, skill, reflex judgment, speed, self-confidence, self-sacrifice, self-control, and sportsmanship …to foster a willingness to place the good of the team above one’s personal ambitions and to lead young men to Christ” Dr. James Naismith
