Quote by Top10 backcourt duo in college basketball






















In modern basketball the backcourt of a team is as important as ever, not only because smallball lineups are now a common sight, but also because of the guards’ key role on offense. Guards have the task to initiate the offense, set the pace, run plays and be the first line of defense on the other side. Beside, there’s nothing as exciting as a dynamic duo of guards making highlight plays.

That is why we will have a look at the Top 10 backcourt duos in college basketball. All the statistics mentioned here go as far as last season, given it is still too early to have more up-to-date numbers. Players like Markelle Fultz and Dennis Smith Jr are not listed in here, although it’s not their fault. They just lack an elite sidekick to run with them.
