Boston College Eagles DFS Snapshot
Jaeden Zackery supplied 19 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals over 43 minutes during Saturday’s 82-78 overtime loss to Georgia Tech. Zackery matched his best scoring output of the season, and the freshman completed an impressive first year with the program. Expect him to take a step forward next season, but he had an impressive season overall with averages of 10.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
Pittsburgh Panthers DFS Snapshot
Femi Odukale logged six points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday’s 78-54 loss to Notre Dame. Odukale moved to the bench for this contest due to the fact he was late for a meeting, according to Craig Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The move resulted in his second consecutive game in single-digit scoring, as well as his lowest assist total since Feb. 2. He’ll presumably return to the starting five for postseason play, which begins with the ACC Tournament on Tuesday against Boston College.
