Arizona Wildcats DFS Snapshot

Bennedict Mathurin recorded 30 points (8-19 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 11-13 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in 41 minutes during Sunday's 85-80 OT victory over TCU. Mathurin not only led all scorers in the game, but a clutch, game-tying three-pointer helped force overtime in this contest and kept the Wildcats' championship dreams alive. While point guard Kerr Kriisa (ankle) did suit up for this contest after being limited in the opening round, he shot a brutal 1-for-10 from the field. Instead, it was Mathurin who carried the offense and even did some fo the facilitating, as was the case in the Round of 64. Look for more involvement from Kriisa and the supporting cast Thursday against Houston, but it's clear Mathurin is the man to go to when the 'Cats need a bucket most.
