And then there were…None. After a blazing run through the non-conference schedule, Arizona State dropped its Pac-12 opener to Arizona as the last unbeaten team in the country. The Sun Devils have improved their NCAA Tournament odds from 300/1 to 30/1 at theΒ Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Duke and Michigan State are co-favorites atop the 2018 March Madness odds sheet at +350.

Villanova (6/1) also suffered its first loss of the season last week against a red-hot Butler team. The Bulldogs shot 68.2-percent from 3-point range to knock off the Wildcats. Wichita State (12/1) made an impressive American Conference debut with a 10-point road win at UConn. Will Duke improve at all on the defensive end, or will Coach K simply try and out-score everyone on their schedule? The Blue Devils have given up 80+ points in half of their games this season.
