Virginia Cavaliers DFS Spin

Kihei Clark totaled 15 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), one rebound, four assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 57-55 victory over Notre Dame. Clark was one of the main reasons Notre Dame escaped with a tight two-point win over the Fighting Irish. He's now scored in double digits in all but one of his last six games while averaging 13.3 points per contest in that span.

North Carolina Tar Heels DFS Spin

Pete Nance had 11 points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds and five assists across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 63-59 win over Notre Dame. Nance recorded an excellent stat line thanks to his two-way play and solid output in the assists category, as he posted a season-high mark in that category. The shooting woes can't be overlooked, however, as he finished the game with more field goals (12) than points scored (11). He's gone six games without surpassing the 11-point mark, but he also has two double-doubles in that stretch.
