    Since everyobody is saying that it can only be done on mission 11 and by choosing the Allison quest line, I wanted to clear some things up.

    You do not have to get this achievement on mission 11!

    It can easily be done after mission 11 or 12 so it doesn't matter which choice you made.
    When choosing and completing mission 12 and failing to save Allison you can simply go back to the Church Of The Machinegod and walk into the courtyard in the back and shoot some hoops.
    It is located at the very bottom of the Prague map.
    I personally got it while I was on mission 14, following the bank heist story, so it really doesnt seem to be time sensitive at all.

    Judge NerdSimplest solution is to jump on the dumpster, jump on the roof, and just drop the ball through the hoop.

    TORNADO0fSOULZI actually got it on Mission 14 (while everything is a restricted zone). There will be 2 guards standing that you MUST stun before you can enter church of the machinegod. I was on Bank Heist play through as well so it DOESNT matter if you save Allison or NOT. You do not have to be on M11 or M12 to get it..

    This takes place during Mission 11; and you must choose Allison over the bank in order to complete this. (If this is not the option you intend to make, create a manual save before the choice and revert back after gaining the achievement).

    After choosing to complete M11 instead of M12, you will enter the underground Church of the MachineGod area. Head straight through the bottom area to the other side to find a small basketball court. Pick up a basketball and make a shot or dunk the ball in order to score and unlock the achievement.

    Marine1TenI tried to unlock this achievement after the bank heist mission. I saw an auto-save after I sunk a basket, but no achievement unlocked. Re-loaded and played the Allison mission and after I completed it: I sunk a basket and still did not see anything pop on screen but it was listed in my unlocked achievement section.

    Fred and IzzyThanks, Marine1Ten. I had the same problem and I was freaking out. I did the Heist mission then completed the Harvester mission and came straight here. Neither Harvester not Ballsy popped but when I looked at my achievement list thanks to the above comment, they were both there. Whshew.

    Marine1TenFred & Izzy, glad it was there! I often feel silly for getting so absorbed in 'cheevos, but I am goal-oriented and doubtful I will change. Cheers!

    So I go to the church courtyard straight after the Bank Heist and start shooting hoops... not easy. But if you pick up the basket ball and stand directly infront of the net, aim as high as you can over the hoop, jump, and press X (drop) whilst in the air, you can score.

    Mission 11 (Confronting the Bomb-Maker)

    After you finish mission 10, you get the choice of doing the bank heist or going to the bomb-maker. Choose the bomb-maker, since you can't get access to the church any other way. Once you're at the church, go inside and walk straight ahead through the room to find a basket and two basketballs. Just like in Human Revolution you have to score once to get the achievement.
