Northwestern Wildcats DFS Spin

Boo Buie ended with 35 points (12-24 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and three rebounds in 35 minutes during Thursday's 66-62 loss to Illinois. Buie went on a tear across Northwestern's last three games played, as he averaged 26.3 points. He is a promising option more than ever for the Wildcats, who have three games left in regular-season action.

Maryland Terps DFS Spin

Jahmir Young provided 16 points (6-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one block across 39 minutes during Sunday's 70-66 OT loss to Nebraska. Despite Sunday's defeat on the road, Young is heating up at the right time to carry the Terps to an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament on the back of a 14-1 home record. The Charlotte transfer has logged 35 or more minutes in four consecutive contests, posting 17.8 points, 5.0 assists and 4.5 rebounds over that span. Young draws another favorable matchup Wednesday against Minnesota.
