I was watching a basketball anime (Kuroko no Basuke/Basket) and sometimes when the balll goes out of bounds(i think) or something like that, the referee shouts ‘black ball’, ‘white ball’, or ‘orange ball’. I really have no idea to what this means. If anyone could help, it would really be appreciated!
(I notice I asked something about basketball twice in a row OwO Maybe I just found a new favorite anime)
The “color of ball” the ref is declaring reflects the color of the uniform on the team who gets the ball.
Honestly, I have never heard of those terms in street, high school, college, or pro ball. It’s probably a Japanese thing.
The color of the team. Fot example if a red team was playing a blue team and the red team threw the ball out of bounds, then it would be blue ball
when they said white ball, the team in the white jersey gets the ball. When they called black ball, that mean the team with the black jersey gets the ball.
That’s referring to the color uniform of the team that will inbound.
The color of the team that gets the ball is what he should yell
Thanks for the help everyone!
