ESTEVES, Pedro. Posture of the opponent and angular relations to the basket constrain decision-making behaviours in 1v1 of basketball. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, suppl.1, pp.17-22. ISSN 1989-5879.

The goal of this study was to analyse the influence of the posture of the defender and the angular relations of the dyad to the basket on the decision-making process of the attacker in the 1v1 sub-system of basketball. After video recording performance behaviours, we digitized: a) attackers and defenders feet positioning: b) participant displacement movement trajectories. Results showed an effect of: a) the posture of the defender on the decision related with the side of drive of the attacker, for scaled interpersonal distances scaled for each dyad; b) the relative positioning of the dyad to the basket on the interpersonal patterns of coordination; c) the relative positioning of the dyad to the basket on the exploration of the alignment with the defender and basket by the attacker.

Keywords : Body posture; relative positioning; decision-making; basketball.
