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.
Chronologically, Herman Sayger was the inventor. Depending on your perspective, the three-point line was developed/introduced several times in the course of basketball's histo…ry. The list of possible "inventors" are included below: # Herman Sayger (1933) # Howard Hobson (1945) # Al Grenert (1950s) # American Basketball League (1961) # Eddie Rios Mellado (1962) # ABA (1968) For a more in-depth answer, you can read Interbasket's article on Who Invented the 3-Point Line (check out the reference/link below)

Answer . \nOutside 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 this line are …awarded 3 points. They are sometimes referred to as "field goals".
Football Defensive Plays . Our football defensive plays are designed to dominate an offense, with heavy pressure and coverage defensive schemes. After starting for 13 years… against the best dynasties of all times (Washington 87', San Francisco 89', Dallas and Buffalo of the 90's, of all-times (Montana/Rice, Elway/Smith, Favre/Freeman, Kelly/Reed and Aikman/Irvin), Tyrone Braxton knows what it takes to STOP and beat an opposing offense. .. Our plays are color-coded, easy to follow and highlight the key points of attack. We also have tips for defensive backs, EG:.. Stay loose and relaxed. Your arms should be dangling . Stay low and balanced ; keep your center of gravity directly above your toes. . Practice back pedaling (drills) . Keep good footing and make crisp, clean breaks when QB releases the ball. . Be honest and don't guess - there is a big difference between guessing and anticipating. Sometimes over pursuit can be worse than under pursuit. . Corner back is a busy position. Stay with the receiver and don't look back at what the quarterback is doing while in coverage. You don't have time and you will lose your footing, balance and focus.. http://www.tyronebraxton.com/football_defensive_plays.html
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 player has to shoot the ball into the hoop from behind the three-point line (the big arc painted on the floor surrounding the basket), which varies in distance depending… on whether the game is NBA, college, high school, etc.
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.
\nYES!\nUnless, of course, you make it and then you only get one more.
Yes this is my question
Ronnie Carr. He played for Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC He made the shot on Nov. 29, 1980 .
The three point shot has provided more intense situations towards the end of games and a higher scoring average for the 24 second shot clock era.
No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.
