The college basketball season got underway over the past weekend and the excitement of the start of another season has finally arrived.
Beginning at Midnight (12:00am, EST), ESPN will begin airing their annual 24-hour College Basketball Tip-Off Marathon, a run of 16 televised games that span all day Tuesday.
Turn on the coffee machine and join us here at Rant Sports for continued live blog coverage throughout the marathon:
Will you tune into a little 4:00am action between Houston Baptist and a rebuilding Hawaii squad? How about a 6:00am east coast showdown between Rider and Stony Brook?
A showdown between Harvard and UMass, a pair of on-the-rise Massachusetts-based squads, highlight the morning schedule, while St. John’s looks to avenge a 2011 loss to Detroit in the early afternoon frame.
The highlight of the marathon of course comes from Atlanta, where the second annual Champions Classic pins Duke against Kentucky and Michigan State against Kansas.
When all is said and done, do you have what it takes to tough out one last 10:00pm tip between North Texas and Kansas State?
The 24-hour college basketball marathon tests the true limit of fans. Can you make it through the entire schedule?
