# What is the free throw line distance to the basket in high school basketball?

 +1 vote! +8 you voted Answer by  BShap (34) The distance from the free throw line to the backboard in high school basketball is 15 feet (180 inches). Because the front edge of the rim sticks out two feet from the backboard, the distance from the free throw line to the front edge of the rim is 13 feet.
