The free throw line in Basketball is 15 feet away from the hoop. It is also 12 foot from end to end. Free throws allow the team to score points with no opposition during the throw.
In basketball, lane shooting is taking shots from inside the free throw lane. This is usually difficult because of the number of defenders.

When the shooter release theball
The restriction of crossing over the foul lane was established in 1956. The NCAA established the rule that requires free throw shooters to keep both feet behind the free throw line during an attempt after reports surfaced that Wilt Chamberlain dunked his free throws.
Generally, it is known as the key, and officially known as the free throw lane.
The low post is an imaginary area outside either side of the foul lane (paint) close to the basket. The high post is an imaginary area outside either side of the foul lane (paint) close to the free throw line.
If you're referring to the "lane" or the "paint" it is the rectangle formed from the free-throw line, and perpendicular lines that extend from the ends of the free throw line to the endline. The official rule is that an offensive player cannot have any part of his body inside this "lane" for more than three seconds, otherwise a three-second violation is called. Also, when an offensive player is shooting a free-throw, no players can enter the lane until the ball hits the rim (High School rules).
The free thrower or any player beyond the three-point arc may not enter the free-throw lane until the ball touches the ring/rim or backboard. However, all players who are lined up in marked lane spaces may enter the lane once the free thrower releases the ball.
i am about 85% sure that you can have your foot in the air across the free throw line. Ref Morgan
three seconds. Three in the key.
Generally, the answer is no. For instance, a lane violation is not a foul. When a player is shooting a free throw, the other players underneath the basket are not allowed to enter the key until that player releases (shoots) the ball. If they enter the key before the player shoots the ball, that is a lane violation, and the player will shoot another free throw (unless he made the shot). Thus, a violation is not always a foul.
what is it that formila one drivers throw out as they leave pit lane
If you are fouled while in motion of shooting the basketball then play stops and you go to the free throw line. Depending on the foul, you will get one, two, or three shots. All other players must stay out of the lane and cannot move until the player that was fouled shoots the ball, and the ball touches the rim. If you make the basket it only counts as one point, not two.
·Three-Second Rule- No offensive player can be in the free-throw lane for longer than 3 seconds at a time.·Five-Second Inbound Violation- When passing the ball inbounds after gaining possession, players have five seconds to get the ball to a teammate.·Five-Second Possession Violation- When a ballhandler is being defended within six feet in the frontcourt, and fails to get rid of the basketball within five seconds.·Lane Violation- During a free throw situation, if you enter the lane too soon, it's called a lane violation and results in a turnover or the other team gets another free throw attempt.·Ten-Seconds In The Backcourt- When the offensive team takes ten or more seconds to move the basketball across the midcourt line into the front court.
A lane violation is when a player tries to get a rebound before the ball gets to touch the rim during a free throw (high school rules). A key violation or "3 in the key" is when a player (offensive player or defensive player) is under the basket (known as the "paint") for more than 3 seconds.
It's similar to entering the lane too soon. If the shooter misses the free throw, he would receive another attempt. If the shooter makes the free throw - nothing, because he would accept the result.
On an NBA/NCAA Basketball court, the area known as "The Lane" is the painted area between the baseline and free throw line; therefore, to "go hard in the paint" means playing aggresive offense when in this area, driving to the basket.
The width of a basketball court in the NBA is 94 ft. by 50 feet . The shaded lane is painted beneath the basketball court is 12 feet wide.
