Kansas Jayhawks DFS Snapshot
Ochai Agbaji recorded 37 points (13-23 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 4-8 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block over 46 minutes during Monday's 94-91 2OT victory over Texas Tech. Agbaji further solidified his status as one of the favorites for the Naismith Player of the Year trophy. His 37 points were a career high, which included a late game-tying three-pointer to send this game to a second overtime. Over the last six games, Agbaji is averaging 23.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.2 three-pointers per contest. Kansas has some other nice pieces, but Agbaji has the ability to take over a game and carry a team to a win by himself.
