a role similar to center. On offense they play with their
back to the basket and on defense they play on low blocks or

pursuing rebounds and score most of their points on the low post
as opposed to taking jump shots from farther away.
||The center's primary
role is simply to be very large, and to use their size to score
and defend from a position close to the basket.
