Iowa State Cyclones DFS Spin

Gabe Kalscheurv ended Monday's 72-69 loss to West Virginia with 26 points (8-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes. Kalscheur averaged 14.8 points during the second half of February. Most of them were using three-pointers. Including only three-pointers, Kalscheur would have averaged 10.5 points on a 37.8 field goal percentage.

Baylor Bears DFS Spin

LJ Cryer notched 15 points (5-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes during Monday's 74-68 victory over Oklahoma State. Cryer played every minute for the first time this season, as he had to carry a bigger role with leading scorer Keyonte George (ankle) sitting out and reserve guard Langston Love (eye) forced out early Monday. However, the Bears' starting point guard, who averaged 14.6 points while attempting 10.0 field-goal attempts per game over the previous seven contests, recorded one of his least efficient shooting performances of the season. However, Cryer has still shot 45.4 percent from the field overall and 42.2 percent from beyond the arc this season. Therefore, Cryer could still be in line for a significant jump in scoring should George and Love both remain sidelined during Saturday's regular-season finale versus Iowa State.
