In basketball, a field goal (a shot made from outside the three-point line) is worth three points.

A goal is also referred to as a hoop. It is what you shoot the ball into in order to get points.

5. 1) 1 touchdown with a 2 point conversion (8 points) and 1 field goal (3 points). 2) 1 touchdown with a 1 point conversion (7 points) and two safeties (4 points). 3) 1 touchdown with no conversion (6 points), 1 field goal (3 points), 1 safety (2 points). 4) 3 field goals (9 points), 1 safety (2 points). 5) 1 field goal (3 points), 4 safeties (8 points).

A drop kick is worth 1 point if attempted as a Point After Touchdown, or 3 points if attempted as a Field Goal. The points are only rewarded if the attempt is successful of course. A drop kick isn't worth any points, per se, it is simply another method of kicking the ball. It was replaced by the punt in popularity when the shape of the ball was changed (from round to more pointed ends) in the 1930s to make it easier to throw passes. However, the drop kick can still be used, and if a ball is drop kicked through the uprights, it is considered a field goal and worth three points. If a drop kick is used during a point after touchdown (PAT) try, and is successful, it is worth one point. One rarely sees a drop kick tried these days as the more pointed ends make the bounce of the ball very unpredictable.

Because It Is.ANSWERThat's just the way the point system evolved. A touchdown is harder to get than a field goal, so you get twice as many points for a TD, plus you get a chance to tack on a bonus point afterward.The original scoring system was 2 points for a TD, 4 points for the point after, 5 points for a field goal, and 2 points for a safety. That reflected the emphasis on kicking in the early days. But as the game moved more toward running and passing, the point system changed to reflect the value of a touchdown over a kicked score.
