“The Simple Layup”

Posted by Steve Bzomowski on June 1, 2006

ellies-layup.JPG“The point is, don’t shoot layups the same way every time. In general, get up as high as you can, and keep your eye on the target. I tell my players to shoot different kinds of layups each day so that their shots and the movement of their legs don’t become stereotyped. If you jump each time you practice them, you’ll strengthen your legs. If you practice layups casually, you’ll shoot them casually in the game”.

pp. 54-55 "The Smart Take From the Strong"by Pete Carril, former Princeton University head coach and legend
