Please use your own judgment and discretion in responding to messages or posting new messages to these groups.

Usenet News Groups

The "rec.sport.basketball" Groups

news: rec.sport.basketball.college-- This news group is devoted to college basketball teams; it is not moderated; discussions of teams, conferences, players, coaches and recruiting

news:rec.sport.basketball.pro--As the name implies, this is primarily for discussion of professional basketball, mostly NBA topics (players, trades, coaching, salary caps, and other news items). Most NBA team information officers will also publish press releases to this news group. It is not moderated.

news: rec.sport.basketball.women-- Usenet news group (unmoderated) devoted to women's basketball in general--topics frequently include WNBA, ABL, women's college ball, and other topics generally related to basketball of interest to women players, fans, recruiters and coaches. Also general news releases from WNBA and ABL teams.

news:rec.sport.basketball.europe--Usenet news group (unmoderated) related to European basketball, from pro to junior level. Discussion in English related to all European countries and the UK; lots of news on Greek and French basketball.

news: rec.sport.basketball.misc --A Usenet news group devoted to "miscellaneous" basketball topics--sort of a general "catch-all" for topics that don't fit elsewhere; lots of messages also found in other topics (e.g., card & memorabilia collecting, officiating, etc). If you're looking for info on basketball cards, this is a good place to start. (See also news:rec.collecting, news:rec.collecting.sport.basketball, and news:rec.collecting.sport.misc). It is unmoderated.

news:rec.collecting.sport.basketball--news group devoted to collecting of cards, memorabilia and other valuable merchandise. News of shows, auctions and sales. Unmoderated.

news: rec.sport.officiating-- news group related to discussing all aspects of officiating (not just for basketball). Unmoderated.

news: uiuc.sport.basketball --many University servers list news groups for discussing many topics; this one is maintained by the University of Illinois-- it is not very active

The "alt." newsgroups

Many of these groups are very active. However, because they are not moderated, you'll have to sort through some "bulk" advertising, some junk email, and occasionally some pretty mild nude or partially nude pics. And who says basketball is just a game?
