|2-point field goals||A 2-point field goal attempt is charged to a player any time he shoots, throws, or tips a live ball at his opponent’s basket in an attempt to score a goal from the 2-point field goal area.|
|3-point field goals||A 3-point field goal attempt is charged to a player any time he shoots, throws, or tips a live ball at his opponent’s basket in an attempt to score a goal from the 3-point field goal area.|
|Free throws||A free throw is an opportunity given to a player to score one point, uncontested, from a position behind the free-throw line and inside the semi-circle.|
|Rebounds||A rebound is the controlled recovery of a live ball by a player or a team being entitled to the ball for a throw-in after a missed field goal attempt or last free throw attempt.|
|Assists||An assist is a pass that leads directly to a team-mate scoring. Scoring includes free throws. If the player who receives the pass is fouled in the act of shooting and makes at least one free throw, an assist is awarded in the same way as for a field goal made.|
|Steals||A steal is charged to a defensive player when his action causes a turnover by an opponent. A steal must always include touching the ball, but does not necessarily have to be controlled.|
|Turnovers||A turnover is a mistake by an offensive player or team that results in the defensive team gaining possession of the ball.|
|Blocks||A blocked shot is charged to a player any time he appreciably makes contact with the ball to alter the flight of a field goal attempt and the shot is missed.|
|Fouls committed||A foul is an infraction of the rules concerning illegal personal contact with an opponent and/or unsportsmanlike behavior.|
