Scoring a 3-Point Basket

Kobe Bryant 3-Point Shot

Here's a basketball question I have...

When a high school player passes the basketball from behind the 3 point arc and it hits a defensive player inside the arc and goes in the hoop, should it be scored as a 3 pointer or just a 2 point basket?

It was an obvious pass that was deflected by a defensive player.

Thanks for the help.

Do you mean the shot is taken from behind the 3 point arc?

If so yes it should be 3 pointer.
