    More sleep improves free throw and 3-pt shooting percentage

    The Stanford researcher Cheri D. Mah found that when she got male basketball players to sleep 10 hours a night, their performances in practice dramatically improved: free-throw and three-point shooting each increased by an average of 9 percent.

    Re: More sleep improves free throw and 3-pt shooting percentage

    I'm pretty sure almost everything that a human being can do, they can do better with more sleep as opposed to less. Isn't that common sense?

    I mean why do most, smart teams anyway, practice FT's at the end of practice or scrimmages? They want you to get used to shooting the freebies tired and fatigued. That way when you are not fatigued it seems that much easier or if you are then you are at least used to it.

    10 hours of a sleep is fairly unrealistic for most people IMO

    6 to 7 here, which explains why the NBA career didn't pan out.

    Re: More sleep improves free throw and 3-pt shooting percentage

    Probably because in REM sleep a person's mind recreates the situations they were in during the day before. Same studies have been done with video games. A person that sleeps after playing a video game for the first time will be much improved the next day.

    Please don't tell the coaches in the SEC that players perform better with more sleep. they will come up a "sleeping class", 4 hour credit, mandatory for all football players each fall session. It will meet every day for 2 hours but you will be allowed to complete the course work on line from home. It will have a daily assignment of writing a single paragraph, summarizing your dreams each night. If you agree to sleep the 2 hours, you get an automatic A in the class.

    They would still fail. I don't think they respect writing all that much down there in SEC-land.
