Indeed. They could at least wear pants with decorations so the shots would be more interesting.

I'm handicapped as the cheerleaders gt the area from just outside the basket to the baseline, leaving me tight up against the basket, which seems to be the favorite spot for the ref. If I could get out near the 3pt line I think it would remain more clear, but only can when the cheerleaders are not at the game.

See this thread if you have not for examples. But short answer is no, it is for tight shots on the basket IMO. Sorry for starting a new thread, search and I don't get along well here, and I couldn't find this thread at the time to attach the samples to.
