The 3 point shot was added in 1987, that year Steve Alford (Indiana) led the Nation in 3 point accuracy!
According to a source at the South Dakota High School Activities Association, the 3 point shot was added to high school basketball for the 1985-1986 season.
The two point shot has always existed in basketball.
foul shot = 1 point any shot within or on the 3 point line = 2 points any shot beyond the 3 point line = 3 points
Yes, there is a 3-point shot in NCAA basketball.
I believe that Julio Pedraza was the first person to make the 3 point shot.
its worth 3 points..hints the name 3 point shot
A regular shot in basketball is 2 points, a shot that is thrown from past the 3-point line is worth 3 points, and a foul shot is worth one point.
The three point line was added for the 1987-88 season in Texas high schools.
Slap Shot from the point, Wrist shot from the point, and fall down and try to make a good shot from there. It will look nice
