Author(s): Lakhwinder Singh
The purpose of the study was to find out the relationship of selected biomechanical variables with performance of jump shot in basketball. For the purpose of the study ten right handed male basketball players of all India inter university level from Punjabi university Patiala was selected as subjects for the study the age of the subjects were between 18-25 years and the height of the player 5’10” to 6’01”. Total of ten attempts were given to each subject and the successful shots marked as score out of two. The performance of each trial was judged accurately and total score was recorded. Camera was placed right side of the player and the distance between the camera to the ring was 7.30 meter & the height of the camera was 1.45 meter. Selected biomechanical variables Projection angle of the ball, Linear distance cover by ball, linear velocity of the ball, Horizontal velocity of the ball and linear acceleration of the ball was measured through cinematography technique with the help of software (quintic coaching 4.01 v17). With regard to purpose of the study Karl Pearson’s product moment coefficient correlation statistical technique was calculated between selected kinematical variables with the performance of subjects in jump shot in basketball. In order to check the significance, level of significance was set at 0.01. On the basis of analysis the data result shows that there was no significant relationship exist between the projection angle of the ball, linear distance cover by ball and linear velocity of the ball jump shot in basketball with performance and the Horizontal velocity of the ball & Linear Acceleration of the ball jump shot in basketball have significant relationship with performance.
