Hey Tiger Fans, Who's Got the Best Backcourt in the Country? 

It's long been argued that college basketball's national championship is won in the backcourt. If such is the case in 2008, the Memphis Tigers have a stacked deck.

Sports Illustrated's Luke Winn has ranked the top 15 backcourts in the country. And Willie Kemp, Antonio Anderson, Andre Allen, and freshman sensation Derrick Rose made the cut ... and then some.

Check out the rankings (and a photo gallery) at the SI website.
