Each shooting round will last 1 minute and 15 seconds with a maximum of 25 balls to be shot. (5) racks each with (5) basketballs will be placed around the perimeter of the collegiate 3-point line (22 feet, 1.75 inches). The racks will be placed as follows: right baseline, right-key, top of the key, left-key, and left baseline. Each made basket will count as 1 point. The last ball in each rack is the “money” ball (different color). Each successful shot with a money ball is worth 2 points. In addition, each shooter will get to designate one rack with all money balls. All money balls are worth 2 points.

The maximum possible score for a round is 34 pts.


Shooting Protocol

When the horn sounds, participants will shoot as many balls as possible during the 1 minute and 15 seconds. All participants will be required to start shooting at the right baseline. The “money” ball must be the last ball shot in each rack. Any participant shooting the money ball before the end of the rack will receive zero points for that ball regardless of whether it was made. When the horn sounds a second time, the round is finished. Any balls still on a rack or in the hands of the participant will not count. The ball must clearly be out of the participant’s hands before the buzzer sounds to count. A certified referee will make the determination and his/her ruling is final.

Participants must be behind the 3-point line for any made baskets to count. Certified referees will be responsible for enforcing this rule. If a participant’s foot/toe is on or over the line, the basket will not count

Appeals Regarding Scoring

No appeals or disputes will be permitted. Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner. Participants must leave the floor as instructed by the referee or officials. Failure to do so may result in being penalized 2 points, or in the forfeiture of the entire shooting round and a score of zero being applied.
