BALANCE --- You must first be on balance because everything starts from the ground up. If you're off balance then you'll throw off every subsequent detail.
SHOOTING SIDE --- Keeping the ball on your shooting side assists in having a straight elbow that is neither in nor out.
QUICK RELEASE --- Quick release promotes fluidity in the transfer of energy that you started from your lower body into your upper body when you project the ball.
FULL EXTENSION --- Full extension on your follow thru with the elbow above the eye not only helps create a well-arched shot, but it also assists with the wrist snap for a soft shot that has backspin.
