Washington Player Spotlight

Isaiah Stewart put up 25 points (6-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 12-15 FT), 19 rebounds and two assists across 43 minutes in Saturday's overtime loss to Oregon. Stewart continued his dominance in his first collegiate season, putting up a career-high in rebounds to go along with five blocks Saturday. The freshman is now third in the conference in rebounding at nine per game, and has averaged 18.3 points per contest. Stewart continues to be the top fantasy option for the Huskies, as evidenced by his 26.5 percent usage rate while taking 27.1 percent of shots while on the floor.

Utah Player Spotlight

Timmy Allen racked up 25 points (6-17 FG, 13-15 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists while playing all 40 minutes in Thursday's 81-69 win over Oregon State. It was the third time this season that Allen has played at least 40 minutes, and is now leading the conference in scoring at 21.3 points per contest. He's been ball-dominant this season as well, leading his team in usage by a wide margin at 29.6 percent. The sophomore is a name to watch not only as a Pac-12 asset in fantasy, but could establish himself on a national scale with more performances like Thursday.
