(NBA)what's the differences between "sand"and "hit"?

hi ,i am a NBA lover,when i read today's NBA news of Houston Rocket,i was puzzled by the difference between the two words:"sank" and "hit".

Alston sank a free throw with 5.4 seconds to go.

Atkins then hit a free throw with 3.6 seconds left, but missed the second and McGrady rebounded.

i want to know the differneces of the two words.

thanks very much.

    there is no difference, they both mean to make the shot. however, for vocabulary variance, there are several different terms used: "drained", "knocked down", "nailed", "swished", "made", etc. Hope this helps.

    they mean the same thing, but people use different types so they don't sound like they don't know anything about basketball

    they are synonims; sport writers use them so their article won't be boring; and i'm pretty sure "sink" means "swish" and "hit" means "off the backboard and into the net"
