Module One Post Three (Math in Basketball)


This website show the jump shot from distance, the jump shot increase the shot and speed. The increased to the ball the higher velocity by using greater shoulders. The greater is your jump the more chances you can shoot. It show that if you jump the greater angle you can get. The reduction in balls release height and release angle.Figure 3

This helps me because the jump shot gives more power and greater angle of the shot. You need a great shoulders to get higher velocity. When you do a lay up you need to jump and your arm need to reach close to the hoop, and you can see is that when you jump is more better aim than just standing and shoot, that WRONG because you won’t get enough good chances.
