Default Settings for Basketball Game

I am going to the Lady Vols vs. Texas Basketball game today and I am wanting to take pictures of the game with my Nikon Coolpix 4300. I am wanting to use the best settings possible to shoot basketball pictures. What settings would work best? Thanks in advance.

I am not too familiar with the 4300, but I've shot my daughters basketball game with my Nikon 5700 without much luck. Hopefully there should be much better lighting with the womens pro game. I would use the manual setting. Try shooting at the largest aperature, 2.8. I would also use the highest ISO setting at 400. Although these settings will not work with the flash, you may also try the continous shooting mode and the Best Shot Selector. Good Luck.
