Xavier Musketeers DFS Spin

Zach Freemantle (foot) could begin practicing again during the middle of this week, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. Freemantle is expected to practice again right before or after Xavier's next game. Regardless of exactly when or if he practices, he is expected to sit out when the team plays at Providence next Wednesday. Currently, the 2022-23 Musketeers' last regular-season game will be a home matchup against Butler on Saturday. That will be Freemantle's last chance to return before tournament play.

Providence Friars DFS Spin

Clifton Moore finished with eight points (4-7 FG), six rebounds, three blocks and two steals over 25 minutes during Sunday's 88-68 win over Georgetown. Moore was a beneficiary of garbage time, but he nonetheless capitalized, delivering solid two-way production. His 25 minutes matched a season high, but his playing time has been especially volatile of late. Moore remains in a game-script dependent bench role.
