Who are the best shooters in this year’s Turkish Airlines Euroleague? Eurohoops.net evaluates the players who have the best percentages behind the three-point line and reveals the top ten.
Who should receive the title of the best shooter this season in the Euroleague? A look at the list of the players with the best percentages is enough to convince you that it’s not such an objective way to judge the best shooters. This is why we limited the list to players who average at least 3 attempts from behind the three-point line in every Euroleague game so far. As such, we evaluated the most accurate among all the players who have attempted more than 54 shots in total in the competition.
Cedevita Zagreb’s Fran Pilepic marginally gets left out of the list, as he has attempted exactly 54 shots. He has made 26 of those at a 48.1% accuracy rate, so he could have been in the top ten. Looking at absolute accuracy percentages, Charles Jenkins from EA7 Emporio Armani Milan was best at 58.3% but that’s based on his 10-for-24 total, too few attempts. Behind him are two CSKA Moscow players with even fewer attempts: Cory Higgins at 20-for-37 (54%) and Andrey Vorontsevich at 26-for-50 (52%).
Several interesting facts arise from the list, like, for example, the fact that seven of the spots are held by Europeans!
