- 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
- 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)
