Study Uses SportVU to Analyze Free Throw Shooting

The researchers examined the flight of free throws based upon a physical model that took into account five major factors, including backspin, launch height, velocity, angle, and left-right deviation. Their analysis, published in the Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports, can attribute a reason to each free-throw miss, such as if the shot was launched too hard or aimed poorly. Players seemed to miss for different reasons. via TrueHoop
