Villanova Wildcats DFS Spin

Brandon Slater fouled out of Friday's 68-64 loss to Temple after recording nine points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes. He also had four turnovers. Slater bounced-back from a disappointing 5-for-14 debut in Nova's season opener Monday. However, Slater struggled with turnovers and has failed to hit a three across Villanova's first two games.

Michigan State Spartans DFS Spin

Joey Hauser totaled 23 points (8-16 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 46 minutes during Tuesday's 86-77 2OT win over Kentucky. Hauser surpassed 20 points for the first time this season in a game that went well past its anticipated length. With a bounce-back effort after scoring just two points in the loss to Gonzaga, Hauser will now try to level out his scoring numbers in a manner he struggled to achieve a season ago.
