Houston Cougars DFS Spin
Marcus Sasser notched 15 points (4-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Thursday's 70-61 victory over Wichita State. Sasser struggled to find the bottom of the basket in Thursday's win. The senior guard still ended up tying with the team high of 15 points, though it took a perfect night from the charity stripe to get there. Thursday marked Sasser's second straight game with only one made three-pointer after seven consecutive games making multiple threes.
Temple Owls DFS Spin
Jamille Reynolds finished with two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block across 12 minutes during Wednesday's 79-76 OT victory over South Florida. Perhaps because it was his first game since Dec. 10, Reynolds played relatively few minutes at a role he is not accustomed to. But sooner than later, he could be part of Temple's starting lineup again. If that happens, Kur Jongkuch is expected to be relegated to backup duties.
