The Field of 68: MSU basketball has one of best backcourts in country

Michigan State basketball will have one of the best backcourts nationally this upcoming year — but is it the best?

The Field of 68 — a college basketball media network — released their top 20 backcourts in the country this week, and to no surprise, the Spartans were included. The trio of Tyson Walker, AJ Hoggard and Jaden Akins is arguably the best in the country, but The Field of 68 doesn’t have them at the top. Michigan State came in at No. 4 behind Marquette (No. 1), Duke (No. 2) and Kansas (No. 3).

I personally wouldn’t trade the Spartans’ trio over anyone else’s backcourt in the country. That’s also not including the depth behind these guys including incoming freshman and McDonald’s All-American Jeremey Fears.
