John Wall Says De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk are Best Backcourt in College Basketball

Former Kentucky star John Wall believes the Wildcats currently have the best backcourt in college basketball.

Here are Wall’s comments from an interview with SLAM:

They’re doing a great job. They’re probably the best backcourt in college basketball. They’re explosive, can shoot the ball, and are playing well. It’s exciting for me this year because I get to see them a lot because they play for Kentucky and are always on TV. Me and De’Aaron built a bond last year. When we were in Houston, I got there a day early and went to go watch him play in high school. I’m excited the way they’re doing and can’t wait to see them get to the pros.


Fox is averaging 15.6 points, 5 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game. Monk is putting in 22.6 points and 2 rebounds through 14 games this season.
