Best Answer

If the player is fouled while in the act of shooting and does not make the basket, he will receive two free throws, each worth 1 point. If the player is fouled while in the act of shooting and makes the basket, he is given the basket (2 points or 3 if it is outside the 3 point line) as well as one free throw worth 1 point.
