Jimmer and Jackson, the best backcourt in the country?

Admittedly, I have been watching a lot of football and have not had a chance to watch too much basketball in the early going.  Still, from what I have seen, I have a hard time believing that there is a better starting backcourt in the country than Jimmer Freddette and Jackson Emery

We all know about Jimmer, preseason all-everything.  Last year, he became an ESPN darling during the first round of the Big Dance.  This year, he hasn’t disappointed.  Picking up right where he left off.  I don’t know how Jimmer will do in the pros, but he is a stud college point guard.

Emery is the perfect compliment.  He is a dead-eye shooter, a lock down defender, quick, and athletic.  All of these things help tremendously.  Jimmer does not have to guard the opponent’s top guard, he does not have to put out as much effort on that end. 

If Brandon Davies can become a reliable 13 to 15 point scorer in the post, this team has the veterans in the backcourt and the right stuff to really make a run this year.  And when I say "really make a run", I mean Elite-8 type of run.
