The detailed parts of the court are clearly illustrated in the above basketball court diagram. The free throw lane is a rectangle in a team’s front court and used to line up players during a free throw. The standard free throw lane is 19 feet long by 12 feet wide. The three-point line is a semicircle that surrounds the basket area on each team’s side of the court. In high school and women’s college basketball, the three-point line is 19 feet 9 inches from the center of the basketball hoop. In men’s college basketball, the line is 20 feet 9 inches away. In the NBA, it stands 23 feet 9 inches from the hoop at the top of the arc and 22 feet at the sidelines. More basketball court guidelines are in the following images.

The sidelines and baselines of a basketball court mark the outside boundaries for out-of-bounds purposes. The sidelines run the length of the court and the baselines are behind each basket. The center jump circle is where the game action starts and has a radius of 6 feet. The division line is a line running the width of the middle court that divides it into two equal sections. In high school and college, a team has 10 seconds to get the ball across the division line, also known as the halfcourt line. In the NBA, the time requirement is eight seconds. The standard basketball backboard is 72 inches wide and is positioned 4 feet inside the baseline. The hoop, or ring, stands 10 feet off the floor and is 18 inches in diameter.
