I recentally read and watched Kuroko's Basketball and loved it! I guess I really like the suspense during competitions haha. Im looking for any sports related manga or anime, and it can be any sport and it doesn't matter if its focused on girls or boys.

Chihayafuru: The "sport" here is kurata, but it has all the feeling of a sports anime and is quite good. (Based on an ongoing manga that is supposed to be excellent, though I haven't read it.)

Get Love: Pretty good manga about a soccer star and his girlfriend.

You can also try anything by Mitsuru Adachi: Nine, H2, Cross Game, Touch (all of which are somewhat old-school but solid manga with anime adaptations).

I've also read some manga that started well until they ended prematurely... but they were all reasonably fun while they lasted: Shuukyuu Shoujo (soccer), Cross Manage (lacrosse), Cross Over (basketball)

last year in college one of my Japanese friends showed me haikyu. It's a volleyball anime and pretty fun to watch. It currently has 2 seasons on CR 25 episodes each but there should be a season 3 in the works according to my friend but idk when it will come out

For anime, I second the recommendations of Chihayafuru, Haikyu. Ping Pong is wonderful but it's a bit more artsy and contemplative at times.

I also think Baby Steps is excellent.
