In 2013, the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) brought together the GSSI Basketball Taskforce, a group of experts working in the game of basketball, to discuss scientific insights related to the nutrition and hydration needs specific to basketball athletes. Over the course of the year, they worked on translating those insights into practical advice found in the report, "Nutrition & Recovery Needs of the Basketball Athlete." This report is available on the home page of the GSSI Website.

In particular, we want to call your attention to Chapter 5: Recovery Nutrition for the Basketball Athlete, which introduces simple ways athletes can use nutrition to improve their response to training.
