dc.description.abstractLimited research suggests that dynamic balance is associated with athletic performance (7). However, its relation to BPA has not been identified. Based on the definition of dynamic balance (33) and the required motor skills associated with high levels of BPA (32), dynamic balance is likely to affect BPA. The purposes of this research are to compare the dynamic and static balance of: 1) collegiate basketball players versus novice basketball players, 2) collegiate basketball starters versus non-starters, and 3) collegiate basketball players with the most playing time versus those with the least playing time. Ten collegiate basketball players and 12 novice basketball players completed three tests of dynamic balance: the athlete 1-leg stability test using the Biodex Balance System SD (BBS SD), the Johnson Modification of the Bass Test of Dynamic Balance (JMBT), and the Stork Stand Static Balance test (SSSB). The results of this study showed that for the three tests: 1) the male college basketball players did not score significantly better than the novice basketball players; 2) the male college basketball starters did not score significantly better than the male college basketball non-starters; and 3) the male college basketball players with most minutes played did not score significantly better than the male college basketball players (p > 0.05). Results from this study indicate that neither dynamic nor static balance, as measured by three general tests of balance, are tests that can be used to determine BPA of college basketball players.en_US
