Abstract

According to the statistical results of the XXV European Basketball Championships held in Athens in 1987, 19.05% of the total points scored were from free shots. It was also found that the percentage of successful free shots, of the 40 highest scores, in this championship had the highest correlation coefficient (r) with the remaining successful types of shots. This indicates that accuracy in free shooting is highly related to a player's total accuracy.
