Basketball is built into the fabric of Springfield College. The game was invented by Springfield intellectual speculative and graduate student James Naismith in 1891, and has grown into the worldwide lithe phenomenon we know it to be today.
It was the winter of 1891-1892. Inside a gymnasium at Springfield school (then known as the International YMCA Training School), located in Springfield, Mass., was a activity of stressed speculative students. The youngster men had to be there; they were required to participate in indoor deeds to burn off the moving picture that had been building stirring since their football season ended. The gymnasium class offered them deeds such as marching, calisthenics, and apparatus work, but these were insipid substitutes for the more looking for excitement games of football and lacrosse they played in warmer seasons.
