Your ESPN college basketball Tip-Off Marathon announcing schedule

kentuckytitle

One of the coolest things ESPN does every year is its 24 hour college basketball Tip-Off Marathon.  For college basketball fanatics, it's a unique way to start the season with 24 straight hours of basketball on ESPN networks starting at midnight tonight and running through Tuesday.  For insomniacs, at least it gives you some variety of programming options at 4 AM to go along with infomercials and House reruns.  This year's slate kicks off with West Virginia at Gonzaga and ends with a doubleheader from the Champions Classic – Michigan State vs Kansas and Duke vs Kentucky.  It'll also be our first chance to hear Bob Knight call a Kentucky game as he joins Dan Shulman and Dick Vitale on the call…
