"Hoop Schemes" is a For Real Segment for "The Guilty Party".


After a winning a couple of one-on-one basketball games, Bianca heads over to Coney Island amusement park. There she tries to win a stuffed animal by sinking a basket. Frustrated by several unsuccessful attempts, when Bianca looks at the hoop from down below, she discovers that it is shaped like an oval, rather than a circle. Using this knowledge, she changes her shooting strategy so the ball goes in without touching the backboard, and, to the chagrin of Mr. Sleaze, sinks two shots in a row.
