The 2017-18 College Basketball season saw the Villanova Wildcats win their second NCAA Tournament Championship in a three-year span, stomping the Michigan Wolverines, 79-62. But they were far from the only major story from the tournament, which included a 16-seed beating a 1-seed (UMBC over Virginia) for the first time ever, and saw Sister Jean and the no. 11 Loyola Ramblers make it all the way to the Final Four.

It wasn’t always smooth sailing for these noteworthy teams, though. Here’s how the odds to win the NCAA Tournament changed for every D1 program in the NCAA throughout the course of the 2017-18 season.
