Pittsburgh Panthers DFS Spin

Fede Federiko (undisclosed) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Mississippi State in Dayton, Corey Crisan of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Federiko left their ACC Tournament loss against Duke with an injured knee. Pitt will certainly hope to have their big man against the Bulldogs who feature one of the top bigs in the SEC in Tolu Smith.

Mississippi State Bulldogs DFS Spin

Tolu Smith ended with 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 FT) and 10 rebounds in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 66-64 OT loss to Missouri. The senior logged his second straight double-double despite losing to Missouri Tuesday. The forward has been phenomenal for the Bulldogs this season, extending his double-digit point streak to 12 straight games after Tuesday. Expect Smith to record more assists moving forward as he didn't record any in the loss to Missouri.
