North Texas Mean Green DFS Spin
Abou Ousmane (personal) does not anticipate to play in the NIT Final Four on Tuesday, Brett Vito of the Denton Record-Chronicle reports. The junior has missed the last two games due to personal reasons and looks to be likely out for Tuesday's NIT Final Four game against Wisconsin. Ousmane is averaging 11.1 points and 6.0 rebounds per game this season. He will be a game-time decision ahead of Tuesday's game.
Wisconsin Badgers DFS Spin
Max Klesmit had 18 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 39 minutes during Tuesday's 61-58 victory over Oregon. Klesmit led all scorers in this contest and was able to propel the Badgers to the semifinals of the NIT next week in Las Vegas. The Wofford transfer has been really up-and-down throughout much of the season from a scoring perspective, however, this late season run could give Klesmit a lot of confidence going into 2023-24.
