3PTSHOT: What is a perfect three-point shot for you?

3PTSHOT: As a professional basketball player, do you work every day on your three-point shot?
Jeremi Booth: Yes, I work on my three-point shot everyday whether it is physical or mental. I have put so much work into my shot, that now it’s all about preparation and balance. I try to have the same release on every shot.

Jeremi Booth: I have made plenty of game tying or game winner three-point shots. But the greatest three-point shot that I have made was my first year in Calais vs. Poissy. The coach drew up a play for me to come off a down screen for a open three-point shot at the top of the key. When the shot went in, my teammates tackled me to the floor and we celebrated. Big time moment in my career.
3PTSHOT: What is your feeling when you score a three-point shot?
Jeremi Booth: I feel great when I make a three-pointer because when the first three goes in, I could get hot and not miss a shot after.
3PTSHOT: What is your favorite move to celebrate a three-point shot made?
Jeremi Booth: I use to celebrate so much in college after making a three-pointer but since going pro, I keep it simple because I play so hard and I don’t want to use unnecessary energy. Maybe I will bring out some celebrations this season out of my bag.
