ESPN Sets Sights On Early-Morning NCAA B-Ball

We know how enthralled you all are over college football, but college basketball is sneaking up on us (note: fans of the Big East already know this, as they have not attended a football game since 1995). To commemorate the opening of the season, on Tuesday, November 17th, ESPN is televising 24 hours of live basketball. In a row.

00 Clock
(They going to have Gatorade for the players, or coffee?)

That means someone had to volunteer to play a game that tips at 6:00 a.m. and at 8:00 a.m. Hardly sounds palatable, but this is ESPN we’re talking about here. Lo and behold, according to the MIAMI HERALD, they quickly found two games to fit the bill: Monmouth at St. Peters for the 6:00, and Drexel at Niagara at 8:00. Sounds fun, right?

Are you going to watch the 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Tuesday college basketball games?
