Aaron Estrada. . . 523. West Backcourts. Mark Sears. . . 1.

Alabama, like Arizona, is coming into this tournament on a lower note, but I think their backcourt is what will help them shine and make a run. Mark Sears is up there with RJ Davis as one of the better guards in the country.

Sears averages 21.1 points a game but is also good at getting the ball to others with 4.1 assists per game while shooting 50.4 percent from the field. He also can show his range easily shooting 43.1 percent from beyond the arc. It is almost unfair how good this guy is and still can be. Sears is a key player for this team and he is the player teams focus on the most in matchups.

Aaron Estrada is no slouch either averaging 13.5 points per game and 4.6 assists per game. He also shoots well from the field with a 45.9 field goal percentage. his three-point shot is not as good as Sears, but he can hit one from deep when need be.

The Crimson Tide will live and die by thier guards. This team will bury you in shots, but if they aren't hitting them, they get into trouble quickly. Typically though, they hit those shots and that is why I think they have the best backcourt in the West Region.
