In 2007, the distance to the 3-point line was extended for men's College Basketball, to the line established for international competition, which is 20 feet, six inches (20.5 feet or 6.25 meters) from the center of the goal.

Three Point Line

The three-point line is generally an arc that is a set radius from a point on the court directly below the center of the basket.

  • NCAA college Basketball uses two different lines for men and women. The men's line is 20 feet, 6 inches. The women's line is set at 19 feet, 9 inches (6.02 m) from the center of the basket (this is also used in US high schools).
  • In international basketball, the three-point line is 6.25 meters (20 ft 6 in) from the center of the basket. The international 3-point line will move to 6.75 meters (22 feet, 2 inches) beginning October 1, 2010, for international play, and October 1, 2012, for intra-national play.
  • In the NBA, the arc is 23 feet, 9 inches (7.24 m) from the goal center, except that near the sidelines, the three-point line is straight and parallel to the sideline. This is to allow room between the three-point line and the sideline. Hence, the distance varies near the sidelines; it is 22 feet (6.72 m) at its closest point in the corners.
