English term or phrase: forward
Quisiera saber cómo se denomina a las cinco demarcaciones "clásicas" en baloncesto en los distintos países hispanohablantes. En España, por ejemplo, es:
Guard = Base,
Shooting guard = Escolta,
Forward = Alero,
Power forward = Ala-pívot, y
Center = Pívot

Muchas gracias por anticipado,
Jerónimo Fernández
