What is the distance from the three point line to the basket?

NBA = 23' 9" (22' in corner) NCAA = 19' 9" from the center of the hoop. From the wording of the NBA rule book: "d. The three-point field goal area has parallel lines 3' from the sidelines, extending from the baseline and an arc of 23'9" from the middle of the basket which intersects the parallel lines." It has moved a few times in the last 10 years but right now this is where it stands. A free throw line is 13 feet.


How far is the 3 point line from the backboard?

High School= 21 feet, NCAA= 22 feet and the NBA= 25 feet. In High School basket ball the backboard is 15 feet from the back of the free throw line and the 3 point line is an additional 6 feet from the three throw line. So the answer is 15 feet plus 6 feet for a total of 21 feet. The High School 3 point Arc radiates 19 feet 9 inches from the center of the goal to just behind the arc. In the NCAA you add 1 foot to the above answer for a total of 22 feet, and for the NBA you add an additional 3 feet the NCAA total for a grand total of 25 feet to the back board.
