Default Re: 3 Point Shooting

I've had the same problem. I'm a fine shooter from about a foot in the three but that extra step puts strain on my shot form that lowers my accuracy alot.

Try experimenting with pushing the ball at the net -- and then seeing where your form sort of meets with the push. It all has to do with a low ceiling on the power you can get out of the form you're using.

Also try emphasizing the push from your legs (like others have said) and try RELEASING THE BALL EARLIER. the earlier release will likely give you more power, if your prob is anything like mine. From that point, it's muscle memory and refining the motions. It will likely feel strange at first, but youu can doo it!
