[Summary]"Summary.—The purpose of this analysis of data from a larger investigation was to assess effects of anthropometric factors on free-throw shooting performance of 15 girls from Michigan and 18 from Puerto Rico. Subjects performed 60 free throws (10 trials × 3 ball sizes × 2 basket heights). Correlations were low, with two exceptions, .53 between shooting performance at the low basket and grip strength (as measured by hand grip dynamometer) for girls from Michigan and .49 for hand width and performance at the low basket for girls from Michigan."
