Abstract

The major purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a season of basketball on the leg strength and explosive power on a select group of players at South Dakota State College. Participants in this study were members of the freshman and varsity squads at South Dakota State College during the 1961-1962 college year. Tests to measure strength and explosive power were administered at the beginning, twice during, and at the end of the 1961-1962 season. The data taken from the Sargent Jump and the leg dynamometer were recorded and analyzed to determine whether the explosive power and leg strength had been affected during the season. The test scores were compared with each other during the season to ascertain if and when a different or change resulted.
