ART. 1 . . . A successful try, tap or thrown ball from the field by a player who is located behind the team's own 19-foot, 9-inch arc counts three points. A ball that touches the floor, a teammate inside the arc, an official, or any other goal from the field counts two points for the team into whose basket the ball is thrown.

Two points

No , it most certainly would not be considered a 3 point shot since it hit the ground before going in.

As good a shot as it was it should count for no points. It should have been treated as a bad pass resulting in a turnover.

...yeah, I remember how we crossed the street against the light on the way to Berlin in 1945 - that's why the Germans actually won the war...

That has to be the mother of all false equivalencies. Congratulations.

What? So if I person tries to swish it, and it goes off the glass, it does not count? Or if a person takes a stupid wild shot with 3 defenders on them, passing up 3 open teammates, and it goes in, it should not count?

Or maybe we should just go with "ball goes on basket, no rules broken, score the points".

The point you are missing is that after the ball left the players hands it hit the floor. There was no offensive player at that end to make a play on the ball and therefore the ball should have been ruled dead at that exact point. The fact that it went in is incidental to the fact that a turnover occurred prior to that.
Again, it was an impressive basket but if the rules of the game are applied the basket would not have counted. That is all I am saying and am in no way trying to negate the "coolness" of that shot. I sure as hell couldn't do it.

of course its a 3 pointer..it is from where the shot leaves the players hand..

In HS Sports, when the ball hits the ground the shot attempt is over. So this is a case where the ball incidentally bounced into the hoop, so it is two points. But she does not get credit for the shot herself.

Girls sports are adorable.

First of all, why did she feel compelled to shoot it from there with 10 seconds left on the clock? Good grief.

Maybe it was a pass....no way to know.

That it was a pass was my first thought until I looked again. If it was a pass it was a pass to the opposing team so it was a lousy pass. I think it was indeed a hail mary shot.
