Abstract: This study investigated the attitudes of coaches and players toward decisions made and actions taken by coaches during the conduct of intercollegiate basketball programs. A basketball situation-response scale was developed for coaches, then modified for players, to determine whether there were differences among Division I, II, and III coaches and players. Further, the investigation sought to determine whether or not variations in the intensity of the competitive setting would elicit different responses from coaches and players. The inventories were administered to 71 head coaches and 175 female athletes. Content validity was assumed on the basis of judges' critiques of sampling adequacy. The results of factor analyses suggested that both coaches and players responded differently when the intensity of the situation increased.
