A common term in basketball is B.E.E.F.. This is an acronym for Balance, Eyes, Elbow, Follow Through. What follow through means is when shooting the ball you want to kind of roll the ball up your hand and then flick it off of your fingertips to get the best shooting results. This not only improves accuracy, but it provides you with the ability to have more long distance shooting. When you follow through, you are increasing the time that you're applying force to the ball. So this increases the resulting distance that you give the ball and lets you shoot farther.
