This is the basketball shooting game that knows when players have scored from “in the paint” or buried a jumper from “downtown.” A pressure-sensitive mat detects whether competitors have shot from two- or three-point range and adds to their totals accordingly, preventing disputes and assuring accurate scorekeeping. Stars in training can compete head-to-head or against the clock, launching shots from close-in or from beyond the arc.
