Kansas

Kansas kicked off the regular season Friday night at Allen Fieldhouse by blowing Tennessee State out of the water in its 92-56 win as a 27-point home favorite.

Senior guard Devonte’ Graham had a solid all-around game with 10 points, 12 assists, seven boards and three steals.

Missouri

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 16/1
Missouri is off to a 2-0 start but the big story surrounding the Tigers is the hip injury to McDonald’s All-American Michael Porter Jr., who played just two minutes in Friday’s opener against Iowa State because of the injury and sat out Monday’s game against Wagner. Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin said after Friday’s game that Porter approached him after he submitted the starting lineup to the official scorer and said that his leg “didn’t feel right.”Martin said he removed Porter at the first opportunity because “his safety and his health was most important. Porter scored two points in his brief appearance in the Tigers’ 74-59 season-opening victory. Porter’s brother Jontay, a five-star recruit in his own right, has looked fantastic and scored 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting, grabbed a team-high eight rebounds and recorded four assists against Wagner.

Wichita State

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 16/1
The Shockers (2-0 SU, 1-0 ATS) beat the hell out of UMKC in their opener 109-57 and followed that up with an 81-63 win over Charleston.6-8 senior center Shaquille Morris is averaging team highs in scoring (17.0 ppg), field goal shooting percentage (72.2%), steals (1.5 per) and blocks (3.0 peer).

Louisville

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 20/1
Despite the fact that the Cardinals are off to a 1-0 start at the time of this writing, does anyone really expect them to contend for much of anything by the midway point of the season? I mean, really, Louisville was absolutely rocked by a program shifting federal investigation debacle that caused the Cards to part ways with longtime head coach Rick Pitino. I’m not expecting anything out of Louisville this season, other than some possible jail time for somebody important, and neither should you!

Villanova

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 20/1
The Wildcats smacked Columbia around in their opener 75-60 as four players scored in double figures for Jay Wright and the Cats limited the Lions to just 41.8 percent shooting from the field. McDonald’s All-American redshirt freshman Omari Spellman had 11 points and 11 rebounds in his debut after academically ineligible last season.
