Never mind the fact he entered college basketball as a point guard, Jamal Murray is considered the best small forward in America, according to at least one college hoops website.
The Sporting News ranked Murray No. 1 on its Top 10 Small Forwards List, released this morning on its website. Murray beat out Duke’s Brandon Ingram, Wayne Selden of Kansas, Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine and North Carolina’s Justin Jackson, among many others, for the top spot.
The rankings are part of The Sporting News‘s position-by-position top tens being released throughout the week. The ten best point guards were named on Monday, and Kentucky’s Tyler Ulis made the list at No. 7.
The top power forwards will be ranked tomorrow, followed by the centers on Friday. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the Wildcats on the site.
