Each competitor takes five 3-pointers, 5 pull-up jumpers and 5 layups before proceeding to the free-throw line to take a 1-and-1. If the first shot of the 1-and-1 is made the competitor gets a second shot. The 3-pointers are worth three points, the jumpers are worth two and layups and free throws one each. The 3-pointers and jumpers must be taken from pre-determined specific locations on the floor.
