The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

B.J. Johnson    F    La Salle    
Johnson scored 29 points (9-22 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 9-10 FT) and grabbed a career-high 23 rebounds in the overtime loss to Rhode Island on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Johnson is averaging 20.8 points and is just a tenth of a point behind Luwane Pipkins for the A10 scoring lead (with Peyton Aldridge also at 20.8 points). The Explorers have only won once in the last five games. The Syracuse transfer should finish his La Salle career strong in the last three games. The team heads to Fordham on Saturday.
Tremont Waters    G    Louisiana State    
Waters helped the Tigers win for the second straight time with 28 points (10-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-8 FT) and nine assists in the win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

After struggling since mid-January, the 5-11 freshman has scored 49 points on 52.9 percent from the field in the last two games. The Tigers have won three of their last four games (all at home) and will hit the road against Georgia on Saturday. The Bulldogs limited Waters to six points and five assists on Jan. 16.
Duop Reath    F    Louisiana State    
Reath was limited to nine minutes in the win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday by an ankle injury. He provided three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT) and two rebounds.

Fantasy Analysis

Reath was wearing a large ankle brace and came off the bench for limited minutes. The Tigers are off until Saturday, so there is a chance that the senior forward could return to the starting lineup at Georgia. Reath had 12 points and three rebounds in the loss to the Bulldogs on Jan. 16.
Wayde Sims    F    Louisiana State    
Sims started over Duop Reath (ankle) and provided a career-high 16 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) in the win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-6 sophomore scored in double digits for the first time in SEC play and just the fifth game of 10 points or more. Reath should be back in the starting lineup before too long, so Sims will likely head back to the bench.
Riley LaChance    G    Vanderbilt    
LaChance scored a team-high 26 points (9-18 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with three rebounds and three assists in the loss to LSU on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

LaChance has averaged 21.0 points and hit 3.3 3-pointers over his last three games and the Commodores lost for the first time in that span. The senior guard has taken a larger part of the offense since Matthew Fisher-Davis (shoulder) was lost for the season in mid-January.
Daryl Macon    G    Arkansas    
Macon scored a team-high 26 points (8-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-7 FT) in the loss to Kentucky on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Macon scored at least 20 points for the ninth time in his last 10 games. He has averaged 3.2 3-pointers over that span and is hitting 43.4 percent from long range. The Razorbacks fell to 14-2 at home.
Kevin Knox    F    Kentucky    
Knox led the Wildcats with 23 points (8-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and grabbed seven rebounds in the win over Arkansas on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Knox has played heavy minutes as a freshman and has struggled at time. His 18 field goal attempts were a season high as the Wildcats won a rare road game at Arkansas. In his last five games, Knox has averaged 17.0 points. Kentucky goes for three wins in a row against Missouri on Saturday. Knox was limited to five points in 25 minutes in the Feb, 3 loss to the Tigers.
Jontay Porter    F    Missouri    
Porter tallied 17 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-9 FT), nine rebounds, and four assists in the overtime loss to Mississippi on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Porter has averaged 13.0 points and 7.0 rebounds in his last seven games. The 6-11 freshman looks like a future star if he stays in school. He reclassified before the season so is playing against older players. The Tigers head to Kentucky on Saturday. Porter had 13 points and eight rebounds in the Feb. 3 win over the WIldcats.
Breein Tyree    G    Mississippi    
Tyree scored a career-high 25 points (9-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), including a game-tying basket in regulation, in the overtime win against Missouri on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

The Rebels were playing their first game under coach Tony Madlock after Andy Kennedy stepped down. The team snapped a seven-game losing streak and win their first conference road game. Tyree took a career-high 22 shots and clearly had the green light from Madlock to shoot. Ole Miss hosts Tennessee on Saturday. The 6-2 sophomore was limited to six points in the Feb. 3 loss to the Volunteers.
Tyler Davis    C    Texas A&M    
Davis equaled his career high with 25 points (9-11 FG, 7-11 FT) with 11 rebounds and three blocks in the loss to Mississippi State on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Davis had a great game in the paint, but it wasn't enough for to snap the Aggies' losing streak which is now at three games. The Texas A&M center had his 10th double-double of the season, but first since Jan. 30 against Arkansas. The Aggies head to Vanderbilt on Saturday. Davis averaged 18.0 points and 7.0 rebounds in the pair of losses to the Commodores last season.
Abdulhakim Ado    C    Mississippi State    
Ado stood up to the Aggie frontcourt and provided a career-high 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 FT) with nine rebounds in the win over Texas A&M on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ado would be one of the more productive freshmen in the SEC if he could stay out of foul trouble. The 6-11 forward has accrued four fouls in four of his last five games, but has managed to provide 11.6 points and 6.4 rebounds over that span. The Bulldogs won for just the second time on the road.
Aric Holman    F    Mississippi State    
Holman (knee) scored 13 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with five rebounds despite playing just 19 minutes in the win over Texas A&M on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Holman injured his knee on Saturday against Ole Miss, but did not miss any games. Foul trouble limited his playing time more than the injury. The junior has hit 44.1 percent of his 3-pointers and is averaging 11.1 points and 6.6 rebounds.
Sagaba Konate    C    West Virginia    
Konate provided 10 points (3-6 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and a career-high nine blocks in the win over Baylor on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Konate's defensive presence helped the Mountaineers dominate in the first half. They had a 22-point lead at halftime. He was whistled for a technical foul after jostling with Terry Maston for a rebound in the second half. He has blocked 22 shots in his last five games and has seven double-doubles on the season.
Jo Lual-Acuil    F    Baylor    
Lual-Acuil submitted 16 points (5-10 FG, 6-8 FT) and 10 rebounds in the loss to West Virginia on Tuesday. He added two blocks.

Fantasy Analysis

The Bears were held to 18 points in the first half and never really made a game of it. Lual-Acuil had his second double-double in the last three games and 12th of the season. Baylor had its five-game winning streak snapped and head to TCU on Saturday. Lual-Acuil had 28 points and 11 rebounds in the overtime loss to the Horned Frogs on Jan. 2.
Nate Fowler    C    Butler    
Fowler scored a career-high 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and grabbed six rebounds in the win over Creighton on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Fowler took full advantage of his extra shots and socred in double digits for just the third time in Big East play. The Bulldogs' backup center has played at least 14 minutes in every confernece game. He has hit a 3-pointer in back-to-back games for the second time this season.
