    A Basketball Star Is Taking 100,000 Shots This Year. She’s in Sixth Grade.

    “I was awful at it,” she said.

    She had no idea how much she was about to improve. Lanie spent the summer before sixth grade in the driveway of her home in the Richmond suburbs taking hundreds and even thousands of shots per day. By the first day of middle school, Lanie was no longer hesitant to shoot. It was the only thing she wanted to do. And she does it a lot.
    Lanie Grant has taken nearly 65,000 shots since last summer. She’s now on pace to shoot the ball 100,000 times in one year.

    Wouldn't matter. This is the type of drive and determination that individual players have to make on their own and dedicate their own free time to outside of practice requirements.

    We probably haven't had a player like this since the 80's.

    She's a female version of Jimmy Chitwood.

    She’s now the #3 ranked player on the Class of 2025 Naismith National Youth All-American list.

    She’s probably pretty good now....
