2012 Paralympics - Wheelchair Basketball

Men’s and Women’s Wheelchair Basketball will be represented by 16 U of I athletes and Matt Buchi as a coach on the USA Women’s team. The sport is governed by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF). The IWBF governs all aspects of the game, including court size and basket height, which remain the same as able-bodied basketball. Athletes in this event are grouped by demonstrated playing ability, rather than strictly by medical classification.
