Puerto Rico has a lot of sports,But today we will be focusing on the number 1 sport. Puerto Rico’s number 1 sport is basketball. Basketball there is really similar to the way we here in the USA play it. There is a well-organized amateur league with 16 teams and a new 6 team pro league. Basketball courts can be found everywhere. They are really dedicated to this sport. They sometimes practice all day long. Arecibo is a city about 1 hour northwest of San Juan, on the north shore of the island. They are the defending BSN Champions. And their leading scorer and was one of the high scorers on the National Team that beat the USA in the 2004 Olympics. They have multiple different sports but basketball is big their along with baseball, horseback riding, cockfighting, and boxing.
