A regulation basketball hoop consists of a rim 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard. A team can score a goal by throwing the ball through the hoop during regular play. A goal scores two points for the shooting team if a player is touching the hoop than the three-point line, and three points (a "3 pointer") if the player is "outside" the three-point line. The team having more points at the end of the game wins.
