Is WNBA 3-point line the same as NBA?





No, the 3-point line in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) is not the same as the National Basketball Association (NBA). In the WNBA, the distance between the basket and the 3-point line is 22 feet 1.75 inches on all sides of the court. On the other hand, in the NBA, the distance is 23 feet 9 inches on most sections of the court, but it extends to 22 feet in the corners. So, the WNBA has a slightly shorter 3-point line than the NBA. An example would be that if a player shoots from the same spot in both leagues, the shot would count for 3 points in the NBA and only 2 points in the WNBA, due to the different distances.
