ESPN’s College Hoops Tipoff Marathon sounded like a good idea until they remembered one thing: What were they going to show during those pesky early-morning hours, when only garbagemen and hyperactive children were starting their day? What schools would be insane enough to want to play at 6 a.m.?
Monmouth and St. Peter’s, that’s who! ESPN now has itself a real marathon, announcing today that their 24-hour hoopsfest on Nov. 17 will include the aforementioned 6 a.m. ET matchup, followed by Drexel at Niagara at 8 a.m. Wake up and smell the basketball, America!
