The rim of the basket is 3.05 metres off the ground. The size of the backboard is approx 1.8 metres by 1.1 metres: it may be varied. As a result, its height off the ground is not strictly regulated.
If the ball bounces off the backboard or rim and you catch it before it hits the ground it counts as a rebound.
no it is encouraged
hit off backboard
You can hit a shot off of the backboard and into the hoop, but you can't hit a shot off of air into the hoop. You can easily shoot more accurately with the backboard.
No, it is not considered out of bounds if the ball hits the side of the backboard. Unless it bounces off the side of the backboard and then out of bounds before you or someone else can catch it.
A brick means the ball bounced hard off of the backboard, like if you threw the basketball hard at it.
basketball hoops are almost always 10 feet (3 meters) off the ground.
As far as I know, that's called a "Bank shot"
yes it can, it can ricochet off the backboard, the floor, or by accident it can ricochet off peoples faces, hands, feet, and anything else.
Basketball has a backboard for the ball to bounce off. Netball hoops just have a hoop no backboard. You have to be very acurate. Also in netball the diameter of the rings is 3 inches smaller.
A regulation basketball hoop stand 10 feet off the ground. If you convert this to the metric system it equals a height of 3.048 meters.
yes but only if it hits the rim
The ball will dribble to high and out of control and if it hits rim or backboard It could bounce off
If the ball goes off the rim and over the backboard then it is out of bounds. If it goes off the rim and hits the top of the backboard but falls back in play on the front side of the backboard, then it isn't out of bounds.
yes you can. in fact there is a recent, and very popular event where Kobe Bryant threw the ball off the backboard, followed it in and dunked it. i believe there is a video on youtube about it.
NO it doesn't as you are not touching the ball and moving with it in your hands
Throughout middle school, high school, college and professional basketball, the backboards are the same size. They are also the same distance off of the floor at 10 feet.
In the NBA, a layup is when the player takes FOUR steps towards the basket and leaves off one foot (usually opposite of shooting hand) and attempts to score a basket (backboard or no backboard). The term is the same in NCAA, and HS basketball just 2 steps instead of the NBA 4 stepper.
