NCAA Basketball (known as World League Basketball in Europe [1] and Super Dunk Shot in Japan) is a basketball video game which was developed by Sculptured Software and/or HAL Laboratory for the Super NES.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

In the game, the player chooses a basketball team and then plays against either a computer or human player on a court. The goal is to score the most baskets within the given time through dribbling and passing. Players also have the ability to save the game as well as change options and difficulty settings.

The game allows the player to play either an exhibition game or a full season.

The U.S. version of the game contains college teams from five major NCAA Division I-A conferences (see below), while the European game features fictional professional teams located throughout the world.

NCAA Basketball was the first 3D basketball game for a console. It used the Super Nintendo's Mode 7 to create a 3D players' perspective that is now the standard for basketball video games.

Conferences included[edit | edit source]

  • Atlantic Coast Conference
