  1. That’s interesting, she shoots ft’s similar to how I shoot them. I bring the ball up closer to my face and go up on my toes with hardly bending my knees. My personal best is 80 consecutive. I would recommend to anybody our method of shooting ft’s. Whether in business or sports you should follow a successful model.
