By D. Pintor, M. Sánchez, M.I. Piñar and D. Cárdenas


&lt;p class="tabulado" align="justify"&gt;In this research a descriptive analysis about some of the parameters implied in the inside play in basketball has been studied. Data of the 16 teams of the A.C.B. league were collected: each team was studied in an official game chosen randomly. Items of observation related with the frequency of apparition of the inside play in the game, with the time expended to offence as well as the way used to finish the play, were established. Data obtained show that in the 41,61% of global possessions appears inside play while in the 37,45% of these take place a pass toward the positions near the basket. The average time expended since starting the possession of the ball until the moment in which a pass is made is 8,41 seconds. The analysis shows the considerable capacity of resolution of players who receives an inside ball, which is represented by the percentage of times in which these players finish the offence (82,78%). A bigger number of direct actions than indirect actions to finish the offence play and a very low degree of opposition to the shot have been detected, overcoat taking in account that these shots were made in areas with a big amount of players.&lt;br /&gt; KEY WORDS: Basketball, inside play, inside pass.&lt;/p&gt;<br>&lt;p class="titulo1" align="center"&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class="tabulado" align="justify"&gt;En el presente estudio se ha realizado una an&amp;aacute;lisis descriptivo de algunos par&amp;aacute;metros que definen el juego interior en baloncesto. Se tomaron datos de cada uno de los 16 equipos que participan en la liga A.C.B.: cada equipo fue estudiado en un encuentro oficial de competici&amp;oacute;n, elegido de forma aleatoria. Se establecieron conductas de observaci&amp;oacute;n relacionadas con la frecuencia de aparici&amp;oacute;n del juego interior en los partidos, con el tiempo empleado en el ataque, as&amp;iacute; como con la forma de resoluci&amp;oacute;n de la jugada. Los datos obtenidos reflejan que en el 4l,61% del total de posesiones se produce juego interior, mientras que en el 37,45% de las mismas se produce un pase a las zonas cercanas al cesto. El tiempo medio empleado desde el comienzo de la posesi&amp;oacute;n hasta que se produce un pase es de 8,41 segundos. El an&amp;aacute;lisis muestra la gran capacidad de resoluci&amp;oacute;n de los jugadores que reciben un bal&amp;oacute;n en el interior, lo cual viene representado por el porcentaje de ocasiones en las que estos jugadores finalizan el ataque (82,78%). Se ha apreciado un n&amp;uacute;mero considerablemente mayor de acciones de finalizaci&amp;oacute;n directas que indirectas y un grado de oposici&amp;oacute;n al lanzamiento sorprendentemente moderado, sobre todo, teniendo en cuenta que los lanzamientos se producen en zonas de concentraci&amp;oacute;n de jugadores.&lt;br /&gt; PALABRAS CLAVE: Baloncesto, juego interior, pase interior.&lt;/p&gt
