What is the Best Way to Shoot?
By: Markus Martin
My hypothesis is shooting from the chest will be the best. I think this because I play basketball and that is how they taught us how to shoot.
I had three people shoot from the free throw line. Each person shot 10 times over their head, ten shots from the chest and also 10 shots by throwing from between the legs.
Over Head Shot
Put basketball up in air, bring back behind head and shoot towards basket.
Start with ball at chest and shoot towards basket with one hand.
Between Leg Shot
Spread legs, lower basketball between legs and throw up towards basket.
The chest shot was more accurate than the over head and between the leg shot. My hypothesis was correct.
