Here is everything you need to know about the opening night of the college basketball season.
No. 1 Duke 94, Marist 49
Duke was without three star freshmen, but a fourth stole the show in the team's opener. Guard Frank Jackson led the way with 18 points, and was one of five players in double figures. Things should be much tougher when the Blue Devils face Kansas next week.
No. 2 Kentucky 87, Stephen F. Austin 64
Another year, another dominant victory to start the year for John Calipari's club. Freshman De'Aaron Fox set an opening-night record with 12 assists to go along with 12 points, as the Wildcats improved to 1-0 on the season. They face Michigan State next week in the Champion's Classic.
No. 11 Indiana 103, No. 3 Kansas 99 (OT)
It might only be night one of the season, but we might have gotten the game of the year in Hawaii. Guard James Blackmon scored 26 points in a wild overtime win, while Frank Mason scored 30 in the loss for the Jayhawks. We'll see if Kansas can bounce back, when they face No. 1 Duke on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.
No. 4 Villanova 88, Lafayette 48
The defending champs again looked like a title contender, in a dominating, start-to-finish win in their season opener. Guard Jalen Brunson was one of four Wildcats in double figures, tallying 17 points and seven boards.
No. 5 Oregon 91, Army 77
The Ducks didn't put away the Black Knights until late, but were able to grab their first victory of the season Friday night. Tyler Dorsey led the way with 21 points, with Jordan Bell and Chris Boucher adding 14 each in the win.
No. 6 North Carolina 95, Tulane 75
Last year's national runners-up looked just as good to open 2017, beating Tulane in New Orleans. Forward Justin Jackson led the way with 27 points, while guard Joel Berry added 23 in the win.
No. 7 Xavier 84, Lehigh 81
We knew coming into the year that Xavier would be led by Edmond Sumner and Trevon Blueitt, and boy did they need them both in their opener. The pair combined for 49 points, as the Musketeers had to hold on for dear life in a narrow win.
No. 8 Virginia 76, UNC-Greensboro 51
After seeing their season end in heartbreaking fashion in the Elite Eight last year, Virginia opened up their 2017 season in style with a dominant win over UNC-Greensboro. Forward Isaiah Wilkins led the way with 10 points and nine boards, while guard London Perrentes added 10 points and three assists as well.
No. 9 Wisconsin 79, Central Arkansas 49
The preseason Big Ten favorites opened up in style, with a dominant win over Central Arkansas. Senior guard Bronson Koenig led the way with 16 points, while fellow senior Nigel Hayes added 14 (including 10 in the second half) in the win.

In the first true marquee showdown of the game, Arizona fell down 17-2 early, only to rally with an incredible victory over Michigan State. After the Spartans tied the game with seven seconds left, Kadeem Allen hit the winner with less than two seconds to go.

No. 13 Louisville 78, Evansville 47
The Cards were forced to sit out the postseason last year, and looked like they entered this season with a major chip on their shoulders, in a dominant win over Evansville. Junior forward Jaylen Johnson led the way with 19 points and 14 rebounds, after averaging just five and three last season.

No. 14 Gonzaga 92, Utah Valley State 69
For all the talk about Nigel Williams-Goss and Jordan Matthews, it was Silas Melson who led hte way with 16 points. Williams-Goss and Matthews added 14 each, as the Zags cruised to a 1-0 start.
No. 15 Purdue 109, McNeese 65
Talk about a dominant performance! The Boilermakers were led by an incredible 23 point, 20 rebound performance from Caleb Swanigan to move to 1-0 on the season.
No. 16 UCLA 119, Pacific 80
The Bruins were about as impressive as any team on opening night, cruising to a dominant win, led by their star freshmen. Lonzo Ball had 19 points, eight rebounds and 11 assists in his college debut, while fellow freshman T.J. Leaf added 22 and 15 as well. It wasn't all freshmen though; senior Bryce Alford had 30 in the win.
No. 17 St. Mary’s 81, Nevada 63
The Gaels opened up with an impressive win over a tough Nevada club, thanks to center Jock Landale. The junior went for 33 and 9 as St. Mary's improved to 1-0 this season.
Wagner 67, No. 18 UConn 58
In the first truly shocking result of the season, the Huskies lost their season-opener at home to Wagner. As a team, the Huskies shot just 35 percent from the field, and made just 6 of 19 three-pointers, in the stunning loss.
No. 19 Syracuse 83, Colgate 55
The Orange made the Final Four last year, and looked like they could this year in a dominant opening night victory over Colgate. Sophomore Tyler Roberson led the way with 18 points, while transfer Andrew White added 17 in the win.

No. 21 Texas 78, Incarnate Word 73
Shaka Smart's club is young and looked it, in a narrow victory over Incarnate Word. Thankfully, the Longhorns do have star freshman Jarrett Allen, who tallied 18 points, 12 boards and three blocks in his Texas debut.

No. 22 Creighton 89, UMKC 82

No. 23 Rhode Island 84, Dartmouth 61
Rhode Island is looking for their first NCAA Tournament in nearly 20 years, and took a solid first step with an easy win over Dartmouth on Friday. E.C. Matthews - who missed almost all of last year with injury - led the way with 21 points.
No. 24 Iowa State 113, Savannah State 71
Monte Morris could be an All-American for the Cyclones, and looked the part on Friday night, tallying 21 points and 11 assists in an easy victory. Naz Mitrou-Long added 18 for Iowa State, which should cruise past Mount Saint Mary's in their next game.
No. 25 Maryland 62, American 56
It wasn't always pretty, but No. 25 Maryland got to 1-0 on the year, with a narrow victory over a tough American team in College Park. Not surprisingly, star Melo Trimble led the way with 22 points for the Terps, who made the Sweet 16 last season.
