Will applied mathematics help Elhabib to elaborate an optimal shooting strategy?

To shoot, or not to shoot, that is the question.

Elhabib warming up before the game.

During the traditional wheelchair basketball game, clinical innovation fellows are constantly faced with the choice of whether to shoot for the hoop or to hold on to the ball and hope a better opportunity will arise. Right before the game, Elhabib, our expert in optimization, tried to use his knowledge to elaborate an optimal shooting strategy without the help of a computer.

Did the strategy work?

Considering the final score, the current strategy may need some refinement.

Stay tuned, for more update!
