That has to be the hardest thing...

Going from full-bore rev mode to relaxed FT motion. Muscles and brains are generally opposed to such actions.

I like what several Puke players were doing last night. Taking repeated deep breaths before stepping to the line and exhaling slowly. I noticed it especially with Duval (1) just before he stepped to the line late in the game and canned two.

Taking a moment to visualize what the shot should look like also helps.

So it really comes down to shot prep when the body is at maximum stress.
