March Madness odds 2018: Wednesday First Four betting lines and trends

Missouri Valley teams have been 8-0 in the round of 64 the last five years with four of those wins coming as the lower seed. Arizona State made just 3 of 10 free throws.

Arizona State was once a top-five team in the nation and was the last undefeated team in the country.

But although you can wipe the slate clean, the things that dirtied it can't be erased.

Syracuse rallied in the second half to defeat Arizona State 60-56 in the last Final Four game of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

With the smaller, peskier Tra Holder and Shannon Evans II determined to be a nuisance to Howard and Battle, Brissett was an important asset on Wednesday.

So, it had to be asked. He is without question the most dominant force in college basketball and not only should he be the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft, he should be the recipient of this year's Wooden Award.

Evans, fighting back tears, took a second and finally replied.

Deitsch feels it would be wise for ESPN to "acknowledge their news reporting amid game recap and say they stand by it... rather than run from it", as that has been the network's stance amid others questioning it. Star junior guard Allonzo Trier (18.4 ppg) was suspended February 22 for the second time in two years with a performance-enhancing drug in his system. "They keep me motivated and keep me going". I've been through so many wars with these guys.

Rabada was named the man of the match after claiming 11 wickets in South Africa's comfortable second Test win in Port Elizabeth . South Africa will hope Philander's impact will swell due to his return to Cape Town, his most successful Test venue.


"We were just aggressive", Justice said of the runs. If Syracuse wins, a classic coaching rivalry would be renewed between Jim Boeheim and former Pittsburgh Panthers head coach Jamie Dixon. "We just feed off that and follow his lead".

"Whenever it's like that, don't count us out, because we're going to be right there". "We had a couple of those work against us as well". The spread opened at 8.5 points as well and was briefly up to 9.5 points.

The Arizona State Sun Devils ended their regular season on a 1-5 straight up and against the spread skid.

Four Bulls average more than 10 points per game, led by junior guard CJ Massinburg, who averages an eye-popping 7.4 rebounds per game.

The individual scoring numbers hide the Sun Devils' downfall: inconsistent offense.

UNC had 12 points off turnovers in the first half, allowing the Tar Heels to take control. That was something the Sun Devils could hang their hats for most of the season, but lately that has not been the case. The Bulls only have two players with over 30 minutes per game: Harris and Massinburg.

"It was a rock fight", Hurley said. "So, one way I want to try to separate myself is the rebounding". "And you have to knock down your free throws". These spots are given to the strongest teams who did not earn a bid by either winning their conference during the regular season, or by winning their conference's tournament at the end of the season.

Instead, the Sun Devils had to come to Dayton. Miller returned to the sideline March 1, the same day he made a public statement denying the allegations.
