Maryland Terps DFS Spin
Julian Reese provided 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 73-62 loss to Ohio State. Reese has four double-doubles in his last four games to take some confident play into the last month of the season. His late-season efforts could see him ascend into the upper reaches of the Big 10 on a consistent basis next season as well.
Penn State Nittany Lions DFS Spin
Camren Wynter ended with 24 points (9-15 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 68-65 OT victory over Northwestern. Wynter recorded over a third of his team's points during a tight win after regulation. Though Wynter has done well by scoring in double-figures over four straight games, his work might go unrewarded without the team improving in late in the season.
