San Jose State's Rashad Muhammad one of the nation's best freshman

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Not much is going right for San Jose State basketball, but the future looks bright with freshman SG Rashad Muhammad.

The San Jose St. Spartans are not considered a good basketball team as they are winless in the Mountain West in eight tries and they are just 6-14 overall. However, there is some hope for the Spartans to become a much better team in the coming years in the Mountain West.

The transition has been tough for San Jose State but they do have one of the best freshman in the country in shooting guard Rashad Muhammad, the younger brother of former UCLA star Shabaaz Muhammad.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman has been doing periodic updates on the top 10 freshman in this college basketball season, but he recently expanded that to include 25 players.

Muhammad makes the cut at No. 22 ($):

[Standing] 6-6, 180 pounds Shabazz’s little brother leads the Spartans in scoring and is shooting well from long distance. Like his brother, who is with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Rashad isn’t much of a passer. He has just 14 assists in the first 20 games. Stats: 14.8 PPG, 44 percent 3-pointers

I think we can all forgive Muhammad for not passing too much on this Spartans team. He is 14th in the league in scoring and he is one of the best three-point shooters in the league. If the San Jose State program can get a few more pieces around him then they might actually be able to make some noise in the next two years.
