When the NFHS first added the three point arc, it had to be a try to get three points, a judgment call for the officials. Eventually the NFHS changed the rule so that the alley oop pass that went in was also three points. The only exception is the ball that bounces off a shoulder, head, etc., from behind the arc and goes in, which is only two points.
