 court dimensions (can be found on the web)  3D coordinates of backboard, hoop  from any location, distance/direction to hoop  given location and elevation angle, find the required velocity for parabolic arc through the basket  pass patterns and coordinates of players  alternate courts (pentagonal, hexagonal, circular)  alternate keys (rectangular, triangular, ...)  total distance a ball travels as it is passed from player to player at given coordinates  sperical ball, dimensions, required finger span to palm it given friction assumptions  spinning the ball on a finger (dynamics)  bouncing ball dynamics (% of original height, total distance traveled after all bouncing done)
