The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisRice 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.
Fantasy AnalysisShields 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.
Fantasy AnalysisPetteway'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.
Fantasy AnalysisClark 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.
Fantasy AnalysisBranch 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.
Fantasy AnalysisHammons 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.
Fantasy AnalysisStephens 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.
Fantasy AnalysisTrice 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.
Fantasy AnalysisValentine 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.
Fantasy AnalysisGibbs 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.
Fantasy AnalysisWhitehead 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.
Fantasy AnalysisDawson 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.
Fantasy AnalysisDesrosiers 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.
Fantasy AnalysisIn 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.
Fantasy AnalysisNewbill 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.
