Biomechanical factors contributing to effective layup shot in basketball: A review study


Author(s): Sankarshan Chakraborty and Dr. Papan Mondal

Abstract: Introduction: Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world. In Basketball a team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket during regular play. For shooting the ball there are variety of shots, which includes the hook shot, the jump shot, the set shot and the lay-up shot. Lay-up shot for goal is most commonly used if a player is dribbling towards the basket and doesn’t want to pass the ball and can get around the defenders. Literature is review to create the content from the past for the new study to be conducted with new subjects and newly obtained data.
Objective: The objective of this study is to critically evaluate the scientific study related to the biomechanics of lay-up shot for better shooting performance and also to get the accuracy in basketball game.
Methods: This article critically reviews the biomechanical factors which contribute to the layup shot in basketball from referred published research work and unpublished thesis. The scholar identified very few studies which directly focus on the biomechanical analysis of basketball shooting skills and also in lay-up shot.
Conclusion: Biomechanical factors like approach speed, take off velocity, take off angle, height of ball release, angle of ball release, speed of ball release, segmental joint angle at release, duration of total flight, landing angle are related with better performance layup shot in basketball.
