Iowa State Cyclones DFS Spin
Aljaz Kunc recorded 22 points (7-10 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, one block and two steals over 31 minutes during Wednesday's 70-59 victory over TCU. Kunc logged a new season high for points during his first game back in the starting lineup since mid-December. The 6-foot-8 senior averaged 8.5 points and 5.9 rebounds while starting the first 11 games of the season. He then missed 10 games in a row with a finger injury before coming off the bench for three contests. Kunc has now scored three, 13 and 22 points while playing 22, 23 and 31 minutes during the last three games, respectively. This steady increase in playing time and production should give Kunc a solid base to build off of over the Cyclones' final five regular-season games.
Texas Longhorns DFS Spin
Sir’Jabari Rice chipped in 24 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Saturday's 85-83 OT victory over Oklahoma. Rice continued his prolific scoring off the bench, as he's now averaged 17.7 points while also scoring in double digits during all but one of his past seven outings. The 6-foot-4 transfer guard's performance Saturday also matched his season high for points set just seven days prior versus West Virginia. Rice's massively increased role over this span should make him one of the Longhorns' top-two scoring options alongside starting shooting guard Marcus Carr, the latter of whom has posted 15.9 points per game across the last seven contests.
