First three point shot in college basketball?
In 2007, the distance to the 3-point line was extended for men's college basketball, to the line established for international competition, which is 20 feet, six inches (20.5 …feet or 6.25 meters) from the center of the goal. Three Point Line The three-point line is generally an arc that is a set radius from a point on the court directly below the center of the basket. NCAA college basketball uses two different lines for men and women. The men's line is 20 feet, 6 inches. The women's line is set at 19 feet, 9 inches (6.02 m) from the center of the basket (this is also used in US high schools). In international basketball, the three-point line is 6.25 meters (20 ft 6 in) from the center of the basket. The international 3-point line will move to 6.75 meters (22 feet, 2 inches) beginning October 1, 2010, for international play, and October 1, 2012, for intra-national play. In the NBA, the arc is 23 feet, 9 inches (7.24 m) from the goal center, except that near the sidelines, the three-point line is straight and parallel to the sideline. This is to allow room between the three-point line and the sideline. Hence, the distance varies near the sidelines; it is 22 feet (6.72 m) at its closest point in the corners.

Freddie Brown graduated from downtown Milwaukee's Lincoln High School in 1967, where other high schools gave him his nickname "Downtown Freddie" Brown, and he was often am…ongst the top free-point shooters in the league. Downtown Freddie Brown was captain of the SuperSonics' 78-79 NBA championship team. When the three point shot was adopted into the NBA in the 79-80 season, he led the league in 3 point shots, and during this time, it became a saying, referring to "downtown" as a far shot (3 point shot).
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.
The NBA adopted the 3 point line at the start of the 1979-1980 season, which is of variable distance, ranging from 22 feet (6.7 m) in the corners to 23.75 feet.
Answer Chris Ford
Answer Outside of the "key", but in the same half of the court, there is another line, roughly in the shape of a half circle. Shots made from outside of th…is line are awarded 3 points. They are sometimes referred to as "field goals".
1.) there is offensive away from the ball foul at the same time as the shot, resulting in no basket, or 2.) the game clock or shot clock has expired before the made 3pt sh…ot was released from the shooters hand or 3.) the shooters foot was on the 3pt line,resulting in only a 2pt field goal.
If a basketball player hits three point shots 45 percent of the time what is the chances if she takes four shots during a game that she misses the first shot and hits the last three?
Around 5-10. Nortre Dame get's about 13 a game Mr. Streak for Cash player!!
No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.
