The triangle offense was the brainchild of Phil Jackson, not Winter.

UCLA tripped me up, although the hint should have made it obvious I was trying to think of a schools that started with U, like Utah

I got Quakers even though it's the least guessed and even though I missed many others. Simply thinking of Q words and given the location, it seemed fitting.

I just have to say that I felt NBA smart taking this quiz. Here is my only gripe: when the answer is a last name, as Ewing, for Patrick Ewing, it would be nice to see the entire name, even if it is a Ewing, Patrick. Case in point, I got Allen for the 3-point scoring leader, but initially could not think of who the player was, just got lucky with the last name. I imagine in hindsight, that it is Ray Allen. I wonder what would happen if someone were to put in the full name, would they not get credit for the answer?

I don't like basketball - too intense for me - but I got almost half the answers. No points, though. I'll keep trying.

Just took it again and scored 14 out of 26, but it shows I got 5 points this time. I'll never understand the points system.

First quiz I've seen where the first names don't appear in the answers. It's oddly unsettling...
