In basketball, a "field goal" is the official term for any basket made from the floor other than a free throw. Most of the scoring in a basketball game is field goals. They are worth two points, or three points if the shot is taken from behind the 3-point arc.

No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.

Any points scored within the three point arc is 2 points. Beyond the arc is 3 points and foul shots are each worth 1 point. Also if you are fouled while taking a hot and you make the basket, however many points that was it counts plus you get one foul shot.

It is called making a basket. Two points are awarded if a player makes a basket from within the three point arc... and three points are awarded if a player makes a basket from beyond the three point arc.

a threee pointer

Shots from behind the free-throw line are 1 point each. Shots from inside the arc are 2 points each, and shots scored outside the arc are 3 points each.

It could be many things! 1. the arc of your shot, which is the point from when the ball leaves your hand to the point it reaches the basket. If your arc isn't right, your shot could be too flat or too high and looped and shooting percentage is lowered. 2. the 3-point line is often refered to as the arc in basketball, including in the NBA/WNBA. If you score from outside the 'arc', you get three points instead of two. Hope I helped! :)
