For some, the first game of the 2019-2020 season is about four months away, but basketball never stops at Prep Hoops. As we prepare for another season, be on the lookout for the upcoming Top 250 Expos in your region. In the mean time, the staff will be hitting you with several preseason nuggets. Below we highlight eight of the toughest backcourts you will find in the city. The list is organized in alphabetical order by team.


Key Players: '20 Cory Barnes, '20 Casheus Covington, '21 Jaylen Hall, '22 Rob Lawson

The Skinny: Each of the guards in the Lions backcourt can fill different Roles. Barnes is the defensive stopper, Covington is a skilled scorer, Hall is a shot-maker, and Lawson is a quick ball-handler.


Key Players: '21 Miasiah Brown, '22 Michael Henderson, '21 Lamont Tate

The Skinny: The Eagles have a skilled, scrappy backcourt with good potential. All three guards can defend, score and facilitate.


Key Players: '22 Devin Dinkins, '20 Chuck Harris, '22 Judah Mintz, '22 Jared Turner

The Skinny: Harris is the vet who has won a ton of games. His leadership intangibles should rub off on Gonzaga's exciting young core.
