Default I'm A LITTLE Discouraged All Of A Sudden. . .

I am a 15 year old 5'8 3/4" PG/SG And Me And My Friend Did A Little Experiment Today To Find Out Our FT and 3PT Percentages. We Did 10 sets of 10 FT's (taking turns after each set) and he had all together 81/100 and I had a horrible 47/100 our 3PTers Were different though we did 10 shots and 5 sets the same way of the FT's (taking turns after each set) he made 15/50 while I had 9/50. I dont know what had happened because I used to be really good at FTs but idk what happened i have Rip Hamiltons' Routine Any Suggestions

one time i shot 100 FT's too see how my % was when i was a senior, and i made 91 of them...i shot 89% during real play...

i shot around 42% from behind the arc my senior year...woulda been a few points higher, but i had one horrible game where i couldnt hit anything, i went 1 for 8 from behind the three...it happens to everyone...



if there's any of ya'll still playin in high school, dont take anything for granted, its the best time of your life...i miss practice after school, the long bus rides to games...cherish it all, i remember every game from my last two years in HS.
