The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-10 center’s effort is also his third straight double-double but unluckily for Northern Illinois, none of his performances have led to victories. The Croatia native has made significant strides this season as he’s more than doubled his PPG and RPG totals since his sophomore campaign. He also now leads the team in both of those categories.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-7 forward had his most productive scoring night since Dec. 12 when he scored 33 points, but it wasn’t enough to topple MAC-leading Akron. The senior continues to be heavily relied upon as he’s averaging 32 MPG over his last 11 contests.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-8 junior continues to produce for New Mexico as he’s now averaging 17.5 PPG, 7.6 RPG, and 1.1 BPG. He’s been especially productive the past six contests, averaging 21.7 points and 8.2 boards. The Flossmoor, IL native is efficient as well as he’s been shooting a robust 59.9 percent from the field this year.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter being left out of the starting lineup, it became all but certain that Gray would be unable to give it a go against Memphis. Wednesday marks his third consecutive missed game due to the ankle injury, and there is no word on when he will return next.
Fantasy AnalysisGray did not take part in warmups and with the release of Wednesday's lineup, it's becoming increasingly clear that the prolific guard won't likely play against Memphis. LeRon Barnes will get the start at shooting guard in his place.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-4 sophomore has been fantastic this year as this night increases his PPG to 17.4 and his RPG to 5.6. Additionally, the guard gets to the free-throw line and hits threes. He has averaged 6.2 FTM and 2.4 3PM per game this year while shooting 85.9 and 45.9 percent in those categories, respectively.
Fantasy AnalysisNebraska was forced to shuffle its lineup a bit Wednesday with Shavon Shields (head) sidelined. Watson posted eight points in 29 minutes in Saturday's win over Rutgers.
Fantasy AnalysisGray has missed the past two games with an injured ankle and it seems he's in danger of missing another contest Wednesday when the Cougars take on Memphis. LeRon Barnes and Ronnie Johnson are two primary candidates to see a solid allotment of minutes Wednesday if Gray is ultimately ruled out.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-10 junior’s effective night helped improve Monmouth’s record to a conference-leading 20-5. The past month has been a productive one for the center as he is averaging 8.1 points and 6.2 rebounds in only 18.6 MPG. He is also shooting 57.6 percent from the field in that span including blocking 1.5 shots per game.
Fantasy AnalysisJackson is enjoying an expanded role in his sophomore campaign, averaging 11.8 points per game while seeing 29 minutes a game for the 20-4 Zips. The last two contests resulted in Jackson scoring a combined 39 points while shooting 14-22 from the field, including 10-14 from deep. Jackson will try to continue his hot play when Akron travels to Northern Illinois on Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisPeters suffered a broken foot early in the season against North Carolina State and was initially ruled to be out indefinitely, but the team has since ruled him as out for the year. It's unclear at this point if he will seek a medical redshirt.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-11 center posted his first double-digit rebound total of the season and now averages 5.6 RPG. He’s been a solid contributor all season, averaging 19.3 MPG while shooting a fantastic 61.5 percent from the field. He also contributes solidly on the defensive end as he averages 1.5 blocks per game.
Fantasy AnalysisBurgess, who had started 13 of the team's first 15 games before suffering a broken hand, has returned to the floor on a limited basis of late. He played two minutes in his first game back on Feb. 3 and had a slightly longer leash in his next appearance, pulling down two rebounds over seven minutes. If he continues to progress, he should start getting a larger role with each passing game. His next chance to see more time will come Thursday against Massachusetts.
Fantasy AnalysisThe senior is averaging 10.9 points per game and 8.3 rebounds for the Cardinals this year. Over the past six games, he has accumulated three double-doubles and has provided a reliable inside presence for a 15-9 Ball State team.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 7-1 sophomore also added four rebounds, an assist, and two blocks to add to his solid night. It was a career-high in points for the Slovakia native and a season-high in minutes played. However, with NBA-prospect Diamond Stone ahead of him on the depth chart, Cekovsky will likely see limited playing time going forward. But as Tuesday night showed, when given the opportunity, the big man can be a productive contributor.
