"Assist" is usually a verb, synonym of "help." Sports reporters have started using it sometimes as a noun. In basketball, for example, say Player A has the ball and his teammate Player B is moving into good position to make a shot. Player A passes the ball at the right time to Player B who then scores. Player B made the goal with an assist from Player A.

An assist is a statistic used in sport to quantify the act of helping another player without having scored a point or a goal.

It is not correct to say "assist to". You would use this: I can assist you with your homework. The word assist would need to have a subject since it is a verb. The word 'to' is not a subject.

An assist is when player A passes the ball to player B and player B makes the shot in a short time, resulting in player A getting an assist.

No. The assist isn't counted because an assist is though of as a fast pass then a score. If a player dribbles then there is no assist counted

A volleyball assist is when a player (usually the setter) sets the ball to a hitter and the hitter gets a kill. The player who sets the ball gets the assist.
