Rayvonte Rice    G    Illinois     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Rice had 23 points (4-for-7 from beyond the arc) with five rebounds and two steals Wednesday night against Nebraska.

Fantasy Analysis

Rice has found his footing over the last four games, averaging 19.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game over that span.
Shavon Shields    G    Nebraska     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Shields had 14 points (2-for-4 on three-pointers) with four rebounds against Illinois on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Analysis

Shields topped his point total from the previous two games (nine) against the Illini, but he is averaging 3.6 rebounds per game over the last five games.
Terran Petteway    F    Nebraska     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Petteway had 13 points (5-for-15 from the floor, 1-for-9 on three-pointers) with three rebounds, two assists and two steals Wednesday night against Illinois.

Fantasy Analysis

Petteway's shooting woes continued Wednesday night, and he has now not scored more than 16 points in any of the last five games and six of the last seven.
Darion Clark    F    USC     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Clark (knee) had four points on 2-of-4 shooting, adding five rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's loss to Oregon.

Fantasy Analysis

Clark was expected to suit up for the game despite a lingering knee injury, but played roughly five minutes less than his season average of 22.3 minutes per game. With Malik Martin in foul trouble all game, the Trojans had to count on Clark a bit more than expected, but the sophomore looks as if he'll be ready to resume his regular minutes moving forward.
Jamal Branch    G    St. John's     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Branch (groin) did not take the court in Wednesday's victory over Marquette.

Fantasy Analysis

Branch was considered doubtful for the Big East matchup, so it was no shocker to see him sit this one out. In his absence, coach Steve Lavin went with just a six-man rotation, with guards Phil Greene, D'Angelo Harrison, Sir'Dominic Pointer and Rysheed Jordan each playing a full 40 minutes of action. Branch's next chance to return to action will be Saturday against Villanova.
A.J. Hammons    C    Purdue     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Hammons had seven points (3-for-12 from the floor) with eight rebounds, two blocks and two assists Wednesday night against Michigan State.

Fantasy Analysis

Hammons struggled to get anything going offensively against Michigan State's front line, but he saved his fantasy grace with good rebound and blocked shot totals. He'll try to finish his solid run through the conference regular season on Saturday against Illinois.
Kendall Stephens    G    Purdue     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Stephens had a team-high 16 points (5-for-8 on three-pointers) along with three rebounds and two assists against Michigan State on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Analysis

Stephens has been up-and-down as a scorer lately, with at least 11 points in three of the last five games and just three total points in the other two contests.
Travis Trice    G    Michigan State     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Trice equaled his career high with 27 points (3-for-6 from beyond the arc) Wednesday night against Purdue, and he added six assists and two rebounds in the game.

Fantasy Analysis

Trice is finishing his senior season strongly, as he is averaging 20.8 points, 6.0 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game over the last five games. He will be a key cog in any NCAA Tournament run the Spartans are able to make.
Denzel Valentine    G    Michigan State     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Valentine had 17 points (4-for-9 on three-pointers) with six rebounds, two assists and two steals Wednesday night against Purdue.

Fantasy Analysis

Valentine has 17 or more points (20 or more twice) three times in the last four games. Over the last five games, he is averaging 16.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.
Sterling Gibbs    G    Seton Hall     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Gibbs (suspension) returned with 11 points, four rebounds, and four assists in the loss to Providence on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Gibbs has not topped 12 points in his last three games. With Isaiah Whitehead on the court, Gibbs' role does not seem clear. He was given the green light to shoot while Whitehead was out, but Gibbs can't dominate the ball with the talented freshman on the court.
Isaiah Whitehead    G    Seton Hall     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Whitehead had 13 points, three 3-pointers, three rebounds, and four assists in the loss to Providence on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Whitehead has averaged 15.0 points, 4.0 assists, and 1.2 steals in his last five games (of which the Pirates have won one). The talented freshman will need to improve his shot selection in 2015-16.
Branden Dawson    F    Michigan State     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Dawson was scoreless over nine minutes Wednesday night against Purdue, and he did not return after taking an elbow to the head in the first half.

Fantasy Analysis

Dawson was able to take part in Senior Night festivities after the game after taking a shot near his right eye, which should be a good sign he'll be able to play in Saturday's regular season finale against Indiana. Stay tuned.
Carson Desrosiers    C    Providence     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Desrosiers (knee) returned from a two-game absence and had two points, two rebounds, and a block in 19 minutes in the win over Seton Hall on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Desrosiers missed a loss against Villanova and a win over Marquette. He provides a big body to keep defenders away from LaDontae Henton and Kris Dunn.
Kris Dunn    G    Providence     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Dunn continued his domination of Big East foes with 17 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, and two steals in the win over Seton Hall on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

In his last two games, Dunn has averaged 16.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 8.5 assists, and 3.0 steals. These numbers are just a bit up from his season averages. The Friars finish the regular season against Butler. Dunn had 25 points in the win over the Bulldogs on Jan. 6.
D.J. Newbill    G    Penn State     + Add To Watchlist
3/4/2015
Newbill had 17 points (5-for-15 from the floor) with five assists and four rebounds Wednesday night against Ohio State.

Fantasy Analysis

Newbill has at least 17 points in four of the last five games, and he is averaging 18.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game over that span.
