THE ENTIRE BACKBOARD IS THE GOAL If the ball hits anywhere on the front end of backboard, including the rim and the side, a score is recorded. The net is not considered part of the backboard; if the ball only hits the net it is not a score. 3. Players may score using one of four different body parts: the wrist, head, elbow, or knee. Wrist shots are worth 1 point, head shots are 2 points, elbow shots 3 points, and knee shots 4 points. Alley Oops one touch scores where the player is off the ground, are worth +1 points.
