2016 WheelChair Basketball
Cutline: Right here, this could be a short or long message.

The wheelchair basketball tournament will consist of five, ten-player teams. The five teams will represent the Army, Marine Corps, Navy/Coast Guard, Air Force and Special Operations Command.

Each game has two halves, 20 minutes each, with a 35-second shot clock. All teams must have a minimum of two players with lower limb impairments (i.e. spinal cord injuries, amputations, etc.) on the court at all times during the game.

Wheelchair basketball rules are very similar to the NCAA rules, with a few adjustments. The chair is considered to be part of the body. For example, a player is out-of-bounds when any part of his/her body or wheelchair touches the floor or any object on or outside of a boundary line. To dribble, players must allow for one bounce of the ball for every two pushes of their wheelchair. Taking more than two pushes in a row is a traveling violation and the other team receives the ball out-of-bounds.
