Layup Fundamentals

A fundamental skill you have to obtain is the ability to shoot a layup with both hands. When players try to shoot a layup with the opposite hand as the side of the basket they are on, it will most likely get blocked or they will miss because the angle is poor. When you shoot a layup from the right side of the basket you want to jump off your left foot. When you shoot one from the left side of the basketbat you'll jump off your right foot.
