The oxygen reacts with a carbohydrate to release energy. For very long exercise sessions, the carbohydrate supply may be used up and fats or proteins will then be used to provide energy. Aerobic energy is more plentiful than anaerobic energy, and because lactic acid is not a substantial by-product of aerobic activity, it can go on for long periods of time.

Use flour (or baby powder or sticks) to mark the positions for the various angle shots on the field. Then take about five or six shots from each position. Have a friend record the shots taken and made from each angle. Another friend can return the ball to you. Then let your friends try the same experiment while you record results or return shots. What is your percentage of success from each of the angles where you took shots?
