Regular Season by the numbers

MIES (Switzerland) - The Regular Season might now feel like a million light years away, but there were a lot of important facts and figures that emerged through the first 224 games which we should take on board before we turn our attention to the Play-Offs.

The 2019-20 Regular Season, which tipped off on October 15th and concluded on February 5th, ultimately produced a Round of 16 which sees eleven different countries represented, more than in any previous year in the Basketball Champions League. Let's have a look back on some key facts to see how this came about.

TEAM RECORDS

  • The average combined score was 160 points per game, a new Regular Season record. This compares with a combined total of 149 points per game in the 2016-17 season, 156 points per game in 2017-18 and 159 points per game in 2018-19.

  • Home teams won 65 percent of games in this Regular Season, the highest percentage in BCL history.

  • JDA Dijon came up with a league-high 154 steals and topped the Regular Season in steals for a second consecutive year. The French side had a total of 135 steals in the 2018-19 Regular Season.

  • The San Pablo Burgos bench averaged a league-high 42.3 points per game. Burgos also led the Regular Season in made three-pointers, with 159 threes.

  • BAXI Manresa were the best perimeter defenders and gave up 89 three-pointers in total, though 14 games. They were also the only team to never give up more than 10 triples in any of their 14 games.
