The objective of the present paper was to examine the performance of Basketball players in Uttar Pradesh Universities. In particular, it delved into the critical role played by anthropometric variables like height and arm length in the performance of these athletes. The study placed a special focus on psychological variables, including speed (measured by a 50-meter run in seconds), arm strength, self-confidence, and aggression. Additionally, it assessed performance variables such as Dribbling, Passing, and Shooting.
The analysis, results, and discussions collectively indicated that players who exhibited greater height and higher levels of self-confidence tended to excel in terms of psychological and anthropometric variables. Among all the variables considered in this study, anthropometric attributes, namely height and arm length, emerged as pivotal factors in determining performance.
This meticulous analysis and in-depth exploration of performance not only contributes to the body of knowledge in sports and physical education but also offers valuable insights for individuals involved in these domains across all levels.
