Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the performance of selected basketball skills and the cardiac cost for the roving player during college varsity basketball games. The subjects were the five roving players on the University of North Carolina at Greensboro women's varsity basketball team. Each subject took the Leilich Push Pass test and a modified version of the Leilich Bounce and Shoot test two minutes after completing a five-minute rest in sitting position and repeated the two Leilich tests in a post-game test on another day following participation in a twenty-minute basketball game. The E & M Physiograph "Four" was used to telemeter the subjects' heart rates during the resting periods, the non-game tests, the basketball games, and the post-game tests. The cardiac cost for the game and skill tests was the difference between the exercise heart rate and the resting heart rate for an equivalent period of time.
