College Basketball Waiver Wire: Pickups of the Week

College Basketball Waiver Wire: Pickups of the Week

This article is part of our College Basketball Waiver Wire series.

Can someone get injured, ha?! Not really, as I'd never wish harm on anyone, but barring something along those lines, this column is relegated to highlighting players that are taking a step forward in role/opportunity compared to a prior season, but also that look to have staying power, rather than flash against overmatched opponents early in the year. 

We're somewhat center heavy this week, which can be a boost to most rosters.

Power Conferences

Alondes Williams, G, Wake Forest

Maybe a little late to the party, but maybe some leagues are deep enough where Williams still sits out there, or maybe some were waiting to make sure his first few weeks were real. After putting up 38 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists against Oregon State and LSU, I'm buying for the time being. I'm not sure I am fully on board with Williams in ACC play, but for now, he's the Deacon to have rostered over Daivien Williamson, who looks like a volume scorer and not much more.

Malik Williams, C, Louisville

Williams seems to be warming up, posting a double-double with four steals Saturday against Maryland, playing 30 minutes in the process. He's been a bit inconsistent out of the gates, but he was also voted second team All-ACC during the preseason. The talent is obviously there, and the expectation is his production levels out as his minutes become consistent as the Cards' schedule picks up.

Qudus Wahab, C, Maryland
