not sure about College Basketball, but the NBA it is 2 points per basket. if the shooter is fouled whilst making the shot he will then have the chance to make a free throw. if the ball goes in the basket then he takes 1 free-throw to make a total of 3 points. if the ball misses the basket then he takes 2 free-throws to make a total of 2 points.

If you shoot it from the big marked circle closest to half court but not at half court and in then it is worth two points, but if you shoot it and make it outside of that circle you get 3 points.

A regular shot is worth two points. Any thing outside the three-point line is worth three points. Each foul shot is worth one point.
