Saturday's game will be a battle of the backcourts

01/26/2017 07:30 PM

The Kentucky-Kansas matchup on Saturday is expected to be one of the best games of the college basketball season so far. A lot of the reasoning behind the hype is the play of the guards between the two teams. Both Kansas and Kentucky have two of the most explosive backcourts in the country.

Kansas is led by senior Frank Mason III (19.9 PPG, 5.2 APG, 4.4 RPG) and junior Devonte’ Graham (13.7 PPG, 4.7 APG, 3 RPG), while Kentucky ‘s freshman duo of Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox have led the way for the Cats this season.

Needless to say, Saturday’s game will be a battle of the backcourts.
