Providence Friars DFS Spin
Clifton Moore closed with 12 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal over 19 minutes during Wednesday's 79-58 win over Butler. Moore was a valuable offensive contributor throughout early stretches of Providence's season, but he's faded since. Wednesday marked his first double-digit scoring effort since Dec. 7, but his fifth overall this season. The fifth-year transfer remains in a fringe rotational role.
Villanova Wildcats DFS Spin
Eric Dixon supplied 22 points (9-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes during Friday's 79-71 loss to Butler. Dixon is on a tear, racking up 63 points on 61.0 percent shooting over his last three games. While all three contests have been Villanova losses, Dixon's performance has been stable and he appears to be kicking into another gear offensively.
