Assistant Men's Basketball Coach, The University of Portland
I always look forward to reviewing new work done by Brian McCormick, because I know it will be well-researched, insightful, and cutting edge. His 180 Shooter did not disappoint. Brian has a critical eye and great ability to break down complex basketball movements into their most fundamental elements, and then incorporate an effective training protocol to progressively teach their mastery. 180 Shooter will be a valued addition to my training resource library.
Shooting Coach, Lone Star Basketball Academy
Brian McCormick is an outstanding coach, instructor and writer. His newest book, 180 Shooter, covers in great detail how to become a better shooter from the ground up. Brian worked for my program (Hoop Masters) as a coach and his attention to detail and ability to teach young eager players is a special gift. I would recommend the 180 Shooter to any player, coach, or parent that really wants to understand all aspects of improving your shooting percentages and overall shooting skills. In this day and age of quick fixes and short cuts it's refreshing to have someone take the time to really explain how to become a better shooter. If you follow the drills, practice the habits outlined in this book and really believe that you can become a better shooter. You will. There are no short cuts to improvement.
