The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisMitoglou is a 6-10, 225 pound Greek forward that averaged 5.8 points and 7.0 rebounds for his country at the 2013 under-18 European Championship. He's the third member of new Wake Forest coach Danny Manning's first recruiting class at the school
Fantasy AnalysisThe redshirt sophomore has spent much of the offseason rehabbing the knee, as well as adding 15 pounds of muscle to his frame. Buggs showed flashes of his potential last season and could be a factor for the Gophers if he returns to full health.
Fantasy AnalysisChatman is Creighton's top returning scorer as former players Doug McDermott and Ethan Wragge used up their remaining eligibility. He started all 35 games last season and was able to average 8.1 points, 4.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and 0.5 steals in 30 minutes per game. As soon as Chatman feels his finger is back to full strength, he'll get back to his normal routine, and it shouldn't have an affect on his play as soon as the season gets started.
Fantasy AnalysisThe rising junior was expected to compete for a starting spot on the wing, but he will instead have to focus on getting healthy for 2015-16. Duke transfer Alex Murphy should help fill the void, though Murphy won't be eligible to play until after the first semester.
Fantasy AnalysisJok's moped mishaps began in April, when was charged with an OWI, an incident that resulted in his license being suspended. His latest arrest comes for driving his moped with that suspended license. Further, Jok reportedly also hasn't replaced the missing safety flag or improper lights on his moped. A 6-6 shooting guard, Jok is expected to play a larger role for Iowa now that Roy Devyn Marble has graduated, but his suspension could set him back in the early going of this season.
Fantasy AnalysisMudiay, a Dallas native, was potentially a great get for coach Larry Brown, who said he was the best point guard prospect at his age that Brown had ever seen. There appeared to be some issue with his amateur status, so Mudiay will look for the highest overseas bidder and be a name to remember for the 2015 NBA draft.
Fantasy AnalysisAs a result of the arrest, Morris was charged with a felony count of marijuana possession with the intent to distribute. The incident was his second in as many years, with the first resulting in a three-game suspension to begin the 2013-14 season. The Bulldogs will lose one of their returning starters, who averaged 8.6 points (on 49.7 percent shooting), 3.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 25.4 minutes as a sophomore.
Fantasy AnalysisEmelogu announced his intent to transfer last month, and the Grand Prairie, TX native has selected a school much closer to home. Virginia Tech's decision to hire Buzz Williams apparently did not factor into Emelogu's decision. As a freshman last season, Emelogu averaged 10.5 points per game while shooting 37 percent from deep. He'll sit out the 2014-15 season, per NCAA transfer rules, before regaining eligibility in 2015-16.
Fantasy AnalysisObasohan had a breakout sophomore season and will look to get back to full strength before the start of the 2014-15 season. He was the third-leading scorer for the Tide last year (9.5 points per game) and stands a chance to be an integral part of his team's success.
Fantasy AnalysisTharpe was considering transferring to a different school but ultimately decided to turn pro. He averaged 8.5 points and five assists for the Jayhawks last season.
Fantasy AnalysisIt's not clear on the exact day Smith tore his ACL, or how the injury occurred, but he tore his other knee in 2011, so this particularly bad news for him. It is doubtful that he will be able to take the court for the 2014-15 season. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged just 5.4 points and 4.8 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game last season, and should fully recover in time for the 2015-16 season.
Fantasy AnalysisFerguson and a former teammate were arrested on June 26 for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of prescription pills, possession of a firearm, and possession of a drug-related object. With him suspended and possibly dismissed from Georgia State's basketball program, the Eagles will be without a three-year starter that has averaged at least 12 points per game during each season at the school.
Fantasy AnalysisCavanaugh will have to sit out a season, after averaging 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds over 21.2 minutes as a sophomore at Wake Forest. The forward's transfer was likely related to Wake's decision to fire former head coach Jeff Bzdelik.
Fantasy AnalysisA two year starter for the Friars, Fortune averaged 8.4 points in 33 minutes per game last season. While he'll sit out the 2014-15 season, per NCAA transfer rules, he figures to step in and contribute right away for the Buffaloes once eligible.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Kansas transfer makes his second official visit after touring Nebraska last week. A former four-star, top-50 recruit, White will have two years of eligibility remaining once he selects a school.
