College basketball refers to a basketball competitive governance structure established by various collegiate athletic governing bodies including the United States’ National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) and others. Basketball in the NCAA is divided into three divisions: Division I, Division II, and Division III. In the NAIA and NCCAA there are two divisions, while the NJCAA has three. The history of college basketball can be traced back to a YMCA International Training School, known today as Springfield College, located in Springfield, Massachusetts. The creation of basketball can be credited to a physical education teacher named James Naismith. During the winter of 1891, Naismith was given two weeks to come up with a game that would keep track athletes in shape and that could still prevent them from getting hurt. The first recorded basketball game was played on December 21, 1891 and thus college basketball had been born.
