The nature of competitive sports align with teams and attached players dealing with upsets, eliminations, and more, besides actually achieving success.
The 2022-23 edition of the Basketball Champions League provides a large sample of early exits. Projected contenders bowing out displayed the solid playing field across the board for the Regular Season and Play-In rounds.
Eurohoops picked five players plus one head coach to be missed the most in the Round of 16.
Following the eight teams knocked in the Regular Season, eight more failed to convert the second opportunity via the Play-Ins. The 16 surviving sides certainly deserved to move on but forcing plenty of household names to spectator status for the remainder of the season adds to the intrigue spilling out of a very exciting season.
