Say what you will about ESPN, but come college basketball time, the network sure knows how to place our rears in our couches for unhealthy periods of time. This year, it is no different. ESPN has released the marathon schedule of games set to take place all day (and night!) long on Tuesday, November 13. For us west-coasters, Gonzaga will be leading the shenanigans off with a rematch of last year's NCAA tournament game against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Full list of games below the jump.
All games are in Eastern Standard Time.
Midnight: West Virginia at Gonzaga
2 a.m.: Davidson at New Mexico
4 a.m.: Houston Baptist at Hawaii
6 a.m.: Stony Brook at Rider
8 a.m.: Northern Illinois at Valparaiso
10 a.m.: Harvard at Massachusetts
12 p.m.: Temple at Kent State
2 p.m.: Detroit at St. John’s
4 p.m.: Butler at Xavier
7 p.m.: Michigan State vs. Kansas (Champions Classic, Georgia Dome -- Atlanta)
30 minutes following MSU/KU: Duke vs. Kentucky (Champions Classic)
The Gonzaga/WVU match-up should be pretty entertaining, but some other good ones look to be the mid-major powerhouses of Butler and Xavier, as well as Michigan State vs. Kansas followed immediately by Duke vs. Kentucky. Pinch me now, I must be dreaming.
