ESPN Announces Hoops 24-Hour Tipoff Schedule

The big four letter's annual basketball marathon is once again in the works this year and feature some extremely good matchups. Seventeen matchups will be televised starting at midnight on November 15th with Northern Iowa at Saint Mary's and a showdown with hoops powerhouses South Alabama and Hawaii will take place on the big island after that. I'm pretty sure that the 2am slot was created for the sole purpose of this tournament.

Anyhoo, here's the rest of the headlining showdowns:
  •  Drexel at Rider
  • Morehead State at College of Charleston
  • Kent State at West Virginia
  • Miami (FL) at UT (W)
  • Louisville at TAMU (W)
  • Team X (has yet to be determined) at Stanford (NIT Season Tip-off)
And the top-tier battles (at Madison Square Garden - State Farm Champions Classic)
  • Duke v. Michigan State
  • Kentucky v. Kansas
I'm a huge fan of this 24-hours of hoops power. You get to see a ton of hoops action in one day and that includes some teams that you wouldn't normally get the chance to see otherwise. Good decision by the higher-ups in Bristol four years ago.
