keep a stady pace as you head to the basket dribbling the ball,stop dribbling in enough time to take 1 to 1 1/2 steps to jump in the air as high as you can laying the ball gently off the glass backboard.You want to try to hit the top corner of the square at a angle that will let the ball drop thru the hoop.GO GET EM KID
