Washington State Cougars DFS Spin
Jabe Mullins was in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against USC, as initially reported by Shotgun Spratling of 247Sports.com. Mullins entered the starting five in place of D.J. Rodman, who missed the game with an illness. The Cougars are down three scholarship players for the moment, leaving Mullins in line for a larger role.
UCLA Bruins DFS Spin
Amari Bailey accumulated 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), one rebound, three assists and two blocks over 24 minutes during Thursday's 70-61 win over Washington. Bailey missed seven conference games due to a foot injury, but in his second game back, the five-star freshman resumed his starting role and put up his best scoring total since Dec. 4. He helped the Bruins bounce back from a two-game skid and appears likely to threaten the shooting guard minutes of senior David Singleton moving forward.
