With 2:45 left in the second quarter, B1 has the ball on the left wing in Team B’s frontcourt, standing behind the three-point arc. B5 makes a backdoor cut toward the basket. B1 passes the ball toward the ring and B5 leaps for the potential “alley-oop” dunk. The ball, however, enters and passes through the goal directly from B1’s pass and is not touched by B5.
Score three points for Team B. A ball that is thrown into a team’s own goal from behind the three-point arc scores three points, regardless of whether the thrown ball was an actual try for goal.
