Baylor Bears DFS Spin

Flo Thamba posted one point (1-4 FT) and two rebounds over 12 minutes during Saturday's 87-71 loss to Kansas. Thamba logged his fewest minutes of any game this season after picking up fouls in Saturday's second-half collapse for Baylor. The 6-foot-10 senior has been one of the Bears' most consistent rebounders this season, averaging 4.8 boards while playing 21.7 minutes per game this season. However, Thamba has averaged just 15.8 minutes per game since reserve forward Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua returned from a knee injury over the last five contests.

Kansas State Wildcats DFS Spin

David N'Guessan (illness) racked up two points (1-2 FG), one rebound, two blocks and one steal in 12 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 61-55 win over Iowa State. N'Guessan started Kansas State's last game but was limited to two minutes due to an illness. While he was available in Saturday's win, his 12 minutes came as a reserve, and he only attempted two shots from the field. KSU has a couple days off before welcoming Baylor to town Tuesday, which will hopefully be enough time for the 6-9 junior to shake his illness and return to the starting lineup.
