TCU Horned Frogs DFS Snapshot
Eddie Lampkin (knee) will miss Monday’s game against West Virginia, Jamie Plunkett of SBNation.com reports. Lampkin will miss his first game of the season after suffering a knee injury in the first half of Saturday’s loss to Baylor. The center has started 23 of 24 games for the Horned Frogs this season, averaging 6.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per game. Backup big men Xavier Cork and Soulemayne Doumbia should see increased roles in Lampkin’s absence Monday night.
Texas Longhorns DFS Snapshot
Timmy Allen fouled out of Tuesday’s 80-78 1OT win over Oklahoma after recording 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes. This was just the second time in the last six games that Allen scored in double figures. He tied Andrew Jones for the game high in this contest as well. Allen will look for a better showing on Saturday against Texas Tech than he had in the first matchup against the Red Raiders on Feb. 1 when he had five points and five rebounds.
