Top 7 scorers you will watch at the BCL Final Four

Today we are going to introduce the players who will be responsible for the show in the Basketball Champions League Final 4 in Malaga.


The Basketball Champions League Final Four MVP 2022, Marcelinho Huertas is at the end of another extraordinary season with 12.7 ppg and 7.0 assists in only 23.4 mpg at 40 years old without a few days. I think he is an example for many young people, to have the honor of playing alongside or against such a player, the 7 assists in 23 minutes are proof of his maturity.


On the sixth is a player who started the season in France and finished it in Germany, Javontae Hawkins, the guard from Telekom Baskets Bonn. Although he has 11.6 ppg this season with the move to Germany, his numbers exploded in 6 games with Bonn he has 14.0 ppg in only 24.1 mpg and the relationship with TJ Shorts could annoy many defenses.


Representing the host of the tournament, Dario Brizuela is the best scorer of Unicaja Malaga and this, in only 18.6 mpg managing 13.1 ppg with 53.7% from the 2-point line and 48% from the 3-point line, he is not a spectacular player but he is one of the most influential players.


Although he is on the list of the best scorers, he will be the scare of the best scorers, we are talking about Zach Hankins, Hapoel’s 2.11 giant. With 13.3 ppg, 8.3 rebounds and 69.1% from the 2-point line, Zach is a monster around the rim and there are chances that we will see a double-double from him (he has done it 4 times this year) including a monster game against SIG Strasbourg with 28 points and 12 rebounds.


The 3rd place is occupied by another center with a lot of experience, the winner of the two Euroleague, Giorgi Shermadini. The 2.17 m veteran has a clear goal, the second Basketball Champions League trophy in a row, having with him a team that went on continuity and won until now. With 14.0 ppg, 5.0 rebounds and 66.7% from the 2-point line in just 21.7 mpg, the Georgian is probably the most experienced center present at this Final 4.


The 2nd place is occupied by an all-rounder, Levi Randolph from Hapoel Jerusalem. In 15 games, he has averages of 15.0 ppg, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists with 54.5% from the 2-point line and 38.5% from the 3-point line. The highest quality is constant, having only one match in which he was not in double digits in points scored, instead, he has 3 matches with over 20 points scored.


The first place is occupied by the defining man of the show, of the explosive basketball, of everything it means to believe in yourself, a player of only 1.75 m TJ Shorts. We will probably see him in a Euroleague team next year, he is the main reason why Bonn is 32-2 in the Bundesliga, in a championship with Alba Berlin and Bayern. The numbers speak for him: 18.7 ppg, 4.0 reb and 7.1 ast, the Germans’ chances in this Final 4 depend entirely on his game, 2 good days and the trophy will go to Bonn.
