Numerous studies show that there is relationship between skilled performance and body organs dominants, such as hands, feet and eyes. In order to compare the performance of left basketball lay-up in ipsilateral and contralateral conditions of hands and feet in university students, 100 male students were selected by a described questionnaires, Chapman - Chapman hand superiority and Wai - Hong Jackie Lam foot superiority and were randomly divided into four groups: 1) 30 right ipsilateral, 2) 30 left ipsilateral, 3) 20 right contralateral and 4) 20 left contralateral. Participants tried right basketball lay-up in 75 trials for 5 days, and finally 5 efforts for an optimal test were conducted. Data were analyzed by analysis variance to compare the mean scores of groups, and LSD pursuit test was used in case of significant effect of different ipsilateral and contralateral conditions. Results: By analyzing the proposed hypotheses at the P≤ 0.01 demonstrated significant differences among groups in performance. In general, contralateral students, especially right contralaterals had better performance compared with other groups.
