It depends what league you're talking about. In the NBA it was added in 1988. In college basketball I think it was added in 1989.
The 3 point shot was added in 1987, that year Steve Alford (Indiana) led the Nation in 3 point accuracy!
The 3 point shot was added to college ball in 1987, I believe. At 19'9" it is shorter than the International version and the NBA version at 23'9"

Yes because you have to prepare for the NBA by shooting at the three point line.
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.
20 feet 9 inches, same as all NCAA three point lines
20.9 feet from center of rim.
This is because some have the college 3 pointer AND the Pro 3 pointer.
The three point line distance in women's college basketball is 19 feet 9 inches. Men's basketball three point line distance is also 19 feet 9 inches. however, that will change to a distance of 20 feet 9 inches beginning in the 2008-2009. The three point line distance in women's basketball will not change. The Playing Rules Oversight Panel also approved moving the women's 3-point line in all three divisions back a foot to 20 feet, 9 inches for the 2011-12 season.
The Southern conference tested the line in the late 70s.
The NCAA's Southern Conference became the first collegiate conference to use the three-point rule, adopting a 22-foot line in 1980
Dalton lairsey shot 659 three pointers in a college season
Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made college basketball's first 3-point shot in 1980. Chris Ford of the Boston Celtics made the NBA's first 3-point shot in 1979.
Starting in the 2008-09 season, the college three point line will be at a distance of 20 feet, 9 inches which is one foot further than it was previously.
1979, the NBA first adopted it on October 12th. Chad Donahue made the NBA's first three point basket
They have quarters instead of halfs and the shot clock is smaller or there is no shot clock at all. Three point line is closer in high school.
The three-point line in high school basketball is 19.75 feet. This is measured from the centre of the basket.
