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 10 of the best backcourts you will find in the state of Maryland. The list is organized in alphabetical order by team.

BALTIMORE POLY

The Engineers have a ton of versatility and this rings true for their talented backcourt. Rahim Ali will look to claim his fourth consecutive state title at the lead guard spot. Brandon Murray could pair with him in the backcourt when they look to go big, but they can also throw sophomore Bryce Lindsay into the fold as an additional ball-handler and shooter.

BULLIS

Rodney Rice, Erik Reynolds, and Cole Hanin each have experience playing on and off the ball. They can all make shots from the perimeter, handle, make plays and defend. 

LAKE CLIFTON

Zac Blackwell will join Michael Gray to form one of the most accomplished backcourts in Baltimore. Both are tenacious on-ball defenders who have won state championships.
