San Diego HS star Ben Bruce tried to hit someone with the ball as he fell out of bounds...hit the ridiculous bounce shot instead

San Diego, CA -- University City High School senior basketball star Ben Bruce

Interesting. A field goal attempt is a player's attempt to shoot the ball into his basket for a field goal. So Bruce would not get credit for the score but a goal is made when a live ball that is not a throw-in enters the basket from above and remains in or passes through the basket - so it is a score.

But for two or three? A successful field goal attempt from the area outside the three-point field goal line shall count three points. (1) The shooter must have at least one foot on the floor outside the three-point field goal line prior to the attempt. (2) The shooter may not be touching the floor on or inside the three-point field goal line.

But...the eventual bounce off the court should have established it officially as a shot inside the arc according to the National Federation of State High School Associations - as was the eventual ruling on this shot by Lewis Palmer high school Anna Olson six years ago.

So...incredible shot.
