A free throw is only worth one point.

Free throw is a term used in basketball, not baseball. In Basketball, it is worth a total of one point

You can get up to 4 points. You can get 1 point for every freethrow you make when you are fouled. Two points for every basket you make inside the 3-point line. 3 points for every basket you make outside the 3-point line and 4 points if you were to get fouled while shooting the 3, therefore if you make your freethrow making it four points all together.

Officially, 1 for a freethrow, 2 for a field goal, and 3 for a 3-pointer (any shot made behind the three-point line).

Shoot the ball into the hoop. A freethrow is 1 point. A shot from outside the 3pt line is worth 3 points. In regular play, any shot inside the 3pt line is 2 points.You get 2 points for every basket you make in.

61 points in honor of his grandfather who died at the age of 61. when chris paul reached 61 points in the fourth quarter he chucked his freethrow shot into the crowd and mysteriously left the court.

This is because the amount of freethrow you get depends on the shot you take and wether you make it. If you take a 2pt shot and miss you get 2 shots. If you take a 3pt shot and miss you take 3 shots. but if you make the shot your points count and you get an extra shot hence the 1 freethrow
