When you put these two words together, they seem like an oxymoron. It may be surprising that
these two concepts can not only be used in the same sentence, but that they are mutually connected. Science can easily be
applied to sports to further the players abilities and understandings of the game. For instance, take physics and the sport of basketball. Although they seem like opposites, basketball has more in common with physics than it does with other sports. Physics affects every aspect of basketball, from dribbling to shooting. By using physics, one can perfect his or her skills and play better. Understanding the physics of basketball can also make the game more interesting to spectators.
