Do the couch to 5k program, and on the off days just practice shooting. Diet trumps everything else. Without proper diet, the program will fail, so make sure you research clean and healthy eating first and foremost.
Running 3 miles non stop is decent cardiovascular shape. Once you can do that, practice running the full length of a court, alternating layups, 3 pointer, and jumpshot on each trip down to either end.
