Let us now talk about the 3 point contest in more detail. In the 3 point contest, the participants of the game try their best to make as many 3 point goals on the field as much they can plus as many the goals are possible that too from almost five positions behind that 3 point line in one minute.
Moreover, the players also start to shoot from one corner of the court as well, and then they start to move from one of the stations to other stations along with the 3 point arc till the time they successfully reach to the other corner.
Moreover, in each of the shootings, the stations are the rack with some five of the basketballs. In addition to this out of the five balls, the four balls of them are only worth one point that is also known as the standard orange Spalding game balls as well as the fifth ball is also known as a red, white, as well as blue A B A style ball that is often also known as the money ball which is worth of two points only. The main objective of this 3 point contest is to score as many points as possible in the time frame of only and only one minute. Moreover, it is also been said that the perfect score is considered as to be around 30 points by the experts of the game.
Moreover, since the 3 point contest of the year 2014 there was a rack that consists of only money balls that have been added and in addition to it can be placed on any of the 5 spots of the player’s choice. That is ultimately very much helpful in bringing up the maximum possible score which is up to around or exact 34 points.
Now, in the year 2020, the contest of two additional Mountain Dew shots was placed on each side that was at the top of the key which in turn was worth only of 3 points each. This was later increased to the maximum possible score which was up to 40. Moreover, for this score of 40 points the time limit was also increased which was from 60 seconds to around 70 seconds. At last, when participants are in the last as well as qualifying round then each player has an opportunity to score as many points as they possibly can score. Moreover, 3 of the players of the game with the top scores are being promoted to the finals.
Moreover, the final round of the game is played in the same way as the qualifying round. However, the players shoot as per the increasing order as per their 1st round scores. Moreover, in each of the rounds, the shots, as well as the score, are ascertained by the referee of the game plus there is the television as well for an instant replay system. The final round will be a shot in the reverse direction like from left to the right corner for a left-handed shooter and vice versa for the right-handed shooter.
