because a field goal in basketball and football are both worth one point That's not correct. A field goal is 3 points in football and 1 point for an extra point
They don't give 3 points for a field goal. Basketball gives you three points when you make a basket at the three point line the three point line was added after the 1978/1979 season.
In basketball, a field goal (a shot made from outside the three-point line) is worth three points.
A field goal in basketball is worth three points while a free throw is worth 1 point
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.
In Basketball, a field goal (a shot made from outside the three-point line) is worth three points.
2 if shot within the three-point-line
The game of basketball is scored with 1,2 and 3 point shots. Players get 1 point for foul shots, 2 points for any field goal that is not beyond the 3 point line, and 3 points for shots beyond the line.
A made free throw is one point. A made field goal is two points. A field goal attempted beyond the arc is a three point shot attempt. A made three point shot is three points.
A regular basket is worth 2 points in basketball. In basketball, a foul shot taken from the foul line is worth 1 point. A field goal, shot in normal play is worth 2 points. A shot taken outside the 3-point line will earn the successful attempt three points.
A field goal in basketball is a three-point shot...I do not belive there is a field throw.
