By the end of the season, a big fuss is always made about who the leading scorers are.
These scorers normally have a few things in common that allow them to dominate opposing defenses.
Top scorers are versatile. The best scorers beat defenses from anywhere on the floor.
Scoring leaders sometimes play in weaker conferences against weaker defenses.
Lastly, top scorers are team leaders who are expected to shoot early and often to ensure their team has a chance to win.
This season is no different. Players near the top of the list of top scorers fit these criteria, and they will continue to dominate because of it.
