Video of Nik Stauskas making 102 three pointers in 5 minutes

Thanks to Yahoo! Prep Rally and Ben Rohrbach. We saw Nik go a non-chalant 45-50 during a Christmas shooting session. In this vid, he was trying to break his record of 96 three point makes in 5 minutes. He hit 102 in 5, 128-142 (slightly over 90%) in the video. He hit a tiny rough patch to start the tournament, but is now back around 45% from three on the year.

Referred to in this article as "the Canadian Jimmy Chitwood", Stauskas sure played like it against Florida hitting 6-6 from deep and scoring 22 on 8 shots. I am guessing he probably plays 4 years of college, yet I think he has skills that end up making him a legit NBA option down the road. He is more than just a shooter and has had a great freshman year. His shot is a thing of beauty and I am just in awe that he hit over 100 treys in a span of 5 minutes. Maybe others could as well, just have not really seen documented proof. Now I have.

Wow

Wow! Both pretty incredible. Just think, Hooper could be even faster if he didn't dip the ball for momentum and start from the old school philosophy of a (unnecessary) shooting pocket. He could probably get like 5 or more shots attempts.

Shooters: The "shooting pocket" and the dip for inertia are unnecessary, make you slower, make more work for you, and are wasted motions/energy. You will get ample power from your legs and wrist action and don't need the dip/shooting pocket.
