The short answer is "height", and there are two elements to the mechanics of this: First, just measure from your right big toe to your right finger tip. Now measure from your left big toe to your right finer tip. The diagonal distance is longer, correct? Thus, with your left foot on the floor, your right hand reaches higher. Second, you want to increase the height still further on the reach of your right handed lay-up. If you thrust your left leg up you will be off balance and the energy of the left leg lift will provide more enery to the left side. Conversely, if you put all the effort into the right leg lift, the energy is mostly transfered to the right side and lifts the right hand higher. Coach Paul, Fundy Dragons Basketball
