The trick is to keep your eyes looking at the back of the rim. This makes you put in just enough power to make it go in.
Also, keep your eyes on the target. Do not look at the ball in flight!
Finally, you must look at the basket as early as possible. This gives you more time to prepare and focus on your shot.
To improve shooting accuracy in basketball, you need to shoot the ball with the right amount of power. You don’t want to overthrow and shoot it over the rim, and you don’t want to underthrow and airball. Both of these circumstances are extremely embarrassing and you want to stay away from.
To know exactly how much power to put, think about your shot as a rainbow. The angle of a rainbow is the exact angle that will give you a higher chance of making your shot.
Visualize the rainbow in your head. This helps me a lot and got me shooting at way higher percentages. Try this next time you play! Draw the rainbow line inside your head and make sure the leprechaun is in the basket.
