Passing and dribbling allows the team to reach a suitable shooting position. Any player may take a shot from anywhere on the court, but the goal is to increase the likelihood of a successful shot. A shot may pass directly through the ring, or it may be bounced off the backboard into the basket. A missed shot is fair game for both teams, who will attempt to gain control of it. The team gaining possession must attempt a shot at the goal within 30 seconds or possession will be given to the opposite team.
