Contest Instructions

Using only one ball, you have 1 minute to score as many points as possible from 5 "hot spots" on the court. No help from rebounders allowed — entries breaking these rules will be disqualified. Contest ends January 09, 2020.

Scoring

Shots made from various zones on the court, or "hot spots," are worth different point values. Choose from any zone to score as many points as you can in the time allotted.

  • 3 points from the baseline (either side of the key)
  • 4 points from the elbow (either side)
  • 5 points at the top of the 3-point arc

You're allowed to attempt a maximum of two layups per game and each made layup is worth 2 points.

Making shots in all five zones gives you bonus points at the end of your gameplay. Combo bonus is worth 5pts each time you make shots from all five hot spots.
