LOPEZ-DIAZ, C.J.; NINO GARCIA, N.; SILLERO QUINTANA, M.  and  LORENZO CALVO, A.. May the multiple dominances principle improve the percentage average in the basketball shot?. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp.211-218. ISSN 1989-5879.

The purpose of the present study is to determine if a basketball shot mechanic based on the eye-hand laterality of the subject may produce a statistically significant increase in the average percentage in the basketball shot in homogeneous players - those whose hand and eye dominance are in the same body lateral -. To achieve this, 34 basketball players (24 boys and 10 girls) in U14 category, all of them registered in Preferente Masculino or Femenino Federado, made 4600 shots from 5 different positions of short and medium range - 2300 shots with both mechanics proposed (traditional mechanic and 45o rotation shot) -. In the data analysis statistical significant differences were found in the free throw shots (t(23) = 2,917; p = 0,008), the zone's left-side throws (t(23) = 3,621; p 0= 0,001) and in the total of the basketball shots (t(23) = 3,980; p = 0,001) with the shot mechanic theoretically ideal. The results obtained support that an alternative basketball shot mechanic based on the eye-hand laterality of the homogeneous players may help them to obtain average percentages significantly higher.
