Keeping the eye on the prize, T. J. Shorts II and Jerrick Harding inch closer to secondary values besides winning the Basketball Champions League

Plenty of candidates dropping out of the race alongside respective teams, Jerrick Harding and T. J. Shorts II stuck around keeping their sights on emerging as the top scorer in the 2022-23 edition of the Basketball Champions League.

Eight teams are left contending for the championship. Fewer players, realistically only Shorts and Harding are gunning to become the player with the most points per game and possibly overthrow Marcus Foster. The Round of 16 signaled the exit of the leading scorer, while Rob Gray and Errick McCollum bowed out in the Play-Ins.
