College Basketball Waiver Wire: Pickups of the Week

College Basketball Waiver Wire: Pickups of the Week

This article is part of our College Basketball Waiver Wire series.

Last week's big news was injuries abound for Houston, and while the Cougars have played only one game since losing Marcus Sasser and Tramon Mark, it was indeed Jamal Shead who was the beneficiary of his teammates unfortunate woes. If he wasn't added last week, he needs to be this week in most all formats.

We're seeing a rash of cancellations right now, so depth on rosters is of paramount importance. 

Power Conferences

Matt Cleveland, F, Florida State

Cleveland returned to action for the first time since December 12 and put up one of his better stat lines, posting 13 points and nine boards in 27 minutes. He's been inconsistent when healthy, but there's no doubting the recruiting pedigree. I'd expect him to get more comfortable and consistent as conference play deepens.

Bubba Parham, G, Georgia Tech

Likely just a speculative add in ACC heavy leagues here. Parham made his season debut Sunday after missing time due to offseason knee surgery. It's hard to gauge his role, as he never played huge minutes for the Jackets last season, but the limited playing time yesterday was all about easing him back. He's a guy that averaged 21.2 points at VMI two seasons ago, so there's something there. We just don't yet know if the Jackets have the opportunity he needs to revisit that.

Greg Lee, G/F, Penn State

It's probably worth checking in on most Nittany Lions, as they played their first game Sunday since December 11.
