Grading Every Top 25 College Basketball Team's Backcourt in 2013-14

It's frequently said every March: Guard play wins championships.

If that's the case, then there are a lot of teams equipped to make a run at the big trophy in Dallas. Great work from the backcourt is one characteristic that many of the Associated Press Top 25 teams share.

After all, February is the month where a clear picture of a team's worth begins to crystallize. It's hard to reach this level at this time of the year without getting great plays from your shooters and ball-handlers.

It's time to break out the red pen and post some grades for each of the Top 25 teams' guard groups. Don't expect too many hatchet jobs, because many of these schools have great guards driving the bus.
