Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The 3-point shot is particularly important, since a player is required to shoot from a distance that requires both momentum of a ball and movement accuracy. However, there have been only few studies on a 3-point shot. The purpose of this study is to clarify characteristics of players who possess high accuracy of a 3-point shot with respect to joint movements and the ball trajectory.
