The 3 point shot was added in 1987, that year Steve Alford (Indiana) led the Nation in 3 point accuracy!

This is because some have the college 3 pointer AND the Pro 3 pointer.

It depends what league you're talking about. In the NBA it was added in 1988. In college basketball I think it was added in 1989.
