Are there rules for keeping score in basketball?

I am a parent of a new youth girl basketball player, and I was asked to run the scoreboard. I did OK, but I do not understand all the rules of scoreboard keeping.

Is there a place to find this info?

Help For Your Question
by: Anonymous My school has the same basketball scoreboard.

Just watch the referee and when his arm goes down, start the clock.

I hope this helps.

As your coach or league director…
by: Joe Waters – webmaster Hey Derek,

I’m not sure if there are specific basketball scoreboard rules. There are so many different types of scoreboards, and they all operate a little differently.

The main components are score, time, fouls, possession and quarter – pretty simple and straight forward.

I would check with your basketball coach or league director for specific directions.

Best of luck!
