This article is part of our College Basketball Waiver Wire series.
The final plays of a game are always magnified. Baskets in the short strokes are clutch and mistakes are game-changing. There is still time in the season that your waiver-wire decisions can still make a big difference. In other words, there is still time!
As we do each week, we'll look at each conference and see if we can't point to a player (or two) who can give your team an extra point (or rebound or assist). Good luck.
Shelton Mitchell, guard, Clemson Tigers
The duo of Marcquise Reed and Elijah Thomas get most of the renown when it comes to the Tigers. Mitchell is in his third year with the team after transferring from Vanderbilt and he has scored in double digits in all three seasons. As a senior, he is providing 11.9 points and 3.0 assists. The 6-foot-4 guard had a down period in scoring over the first five weeks of ACC play, but he has bounced back lately. In his last five games, he has scored at least 12 points and averaged 14.8 points. Clemson heads to Pittsburgh then hosts North Carolina.
Jarius Hamilton, forward, Boston College Eagles
The Eagles have been dealing with injuries to players such as Nik Popovic, who has returned, and Wynston Tabbs, who has not. They have had to rely on some young players, such as the 6-8 Hamilton. The freshman has come through with 28 points in his last two games and played at least 34 minutes in each game.
