Baylor Bears DFS Spin
Jalen Bridges produced 12 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block over 25 minutes during Saturday's 74-58 victory over Oklahoma State. Bridges logged at least 10 points for the third game in a row, also marking his fifth time doing so in the last seven contests. The 6-foot-7 junior has been the Bears' fourth scoring option, as he's averaged 6.8 field-goal tries and 2.4 free-throw attempts per game. Bridges does lead the team with 5.4 boards per game, though he is still one of five Baylor players to average more than four rebounds per contest. Bridges has averaged 29.6 minutes through the last five games versus conference opponents, so this increased playing time could help his production separate from reserve big men Caleb Lohner and Joshua Ojianwuna moving forward.
Texas Tech Red Raiders DFS Spin
Fardaws Aimaq logged 12 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes during the Red Raiders' 72-70 loss Saturday at Texas. Saturday indicated Aimaq has no problems attempting field goals and scoring points despite not playing multiple games since March. He is expected to be part of the Red Raiders' starting lineup again sooner than later. Before transferring from Utah Valley, Aimaq averaged 18.9 points during his junior year. That rate does not warrant him being a backup.
