Memphis Tigers DFS Snapshot

Jalen Duren registered 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 33 minutes during Sunday's 71-53 loss to Houston. Duren was somewhat of a question mark after leaving Saturday's semifinal game against SMU with a wrist injury. He looked just fine in the championship against Houston even though the team did not have the best overall performances. There shouldn't be any concern going into Thursday's matchup with Boise State in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

Kigab has now exceeded 20 points in four of his last six games. The fifth-year senior and former Oregon transfer is averaging 14.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per contest. He'll look to lead Boise State to a Mountain West Conference championship Saturday against San Diego State.
