The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisThe ailment doesn't sound overly severe, but considering it already forced Egekeze out of one contest, consider the sophomore forward a game-time decision for Tuesday's showdown with Lipscomb. Egekeze, who typically serves as a starting forward, is the second-leading rebounder on the team with 4.5 boards per contest. He also contributes on the scoring end, generating 12.0 PPG after reaching double figures in his last four games prior to Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisCook converted 5-of-9 shots from the field and 4-of-5 free throws to tie Chris Boucher as Oregon's second-best scorer in Monday's contest. The senior also finished with the second-most rebounds by a Duck player (7) and matched Casey Benson with a team-high three steals in the victory. The Milwaukee, WI native heads into a Friday match up with UNLV having scored no less than 11 points in each of his first six appearances of 2015-16, averaging 5.5 rebounds an outing and pacing UO in steals (two per game, which is also tied for second-most in the Pac-12).
Fantasy AnalysisBoucher converted 4-of-9 shots from the floor and 5-of-8 free throws to finish tied with Elgin Cook as Oregon's second-best scorer in Monday's contest. The junior also contributed five rebounds (third-most by a Duck player) and a team-high five blocks in the victory. The 6-10, 200-pound forward heads into a Friday match up with UNLV now having eclipsed double figures in five of his first six appearances of 2015-16 and averaging an impressive 7.2 rebounds (second-best on the team) and 4.3 blocks (highest in the Pac-12) per outing.
Fantasy AnalysisBrooks' output in Monday night's game left him not only recording his second-highest point (21) and rebound (10) totals of the season, but also his second double-double in three outings. The sophomore (13.5 points a game) heads into a match up with UNLV trailing only Tyler Dorsey as Oregon's leading scorer and pacing the Ducks in rebounds (7.5 per outing).
Fantasy AnalysisMorgan averaged 6.7 minutes per game over the first six contests of the year, but missed Monday's showdown against Alcorn State. The freshman had a chance to earn meaningful minutes this season following some key losses to the program, but an expanded role will have to be temporarily put on hold.
Fantasy AnalysisLee came off the bench for the first time this season, as coach John Calipari decided to insert Alex Poythress into a starting forward role. It didn't impact his playing time, however, as Lee still logged 30 minutes on the floor in the contest. It's unclear if Calipari plans to continue using Lee off the bench moving forward, but regardless of his decision, the junior's production doesn't necessarily appear in line to take a hit.
