A look inside the VCU Basketball Development Center
The center (C), also known as the five, or the big man, is one of the five positions in a regular basketball game. The center is normally the tallest player on the team, and often has a great deal of strength and body mass as well. In the NBA, the center is usually 6' 10" or taller and usually weighs 240 lbs or more.
