As usual, ESPN will be hosting a 24-hour college basketball "marathon" across three of it's channels as well as ESPN3.com. The marathon is scheduled for November 16th and Villanova's NIT Season Tip-Off tilt against Marist will be a part of the schedule at 5:30pm on ESPNU.
Big 5 rivals La Salle and St. Joseph's will also be on the schedule. The Explorers will take on the Baylor Bears at 2pm (ESPN), and St. Joes will play Penn State at a time to be determined on ESPN3.com.
For those of you hoping to scout out some of Villanova's 2010 opponents, the marathon will also feature St. Johns and their new head coach Steve Lavin taking on the St. Mary's Gaels in the wee hours of the morning (2:00am EST, ESPN). Monmouth will also take part, hosting Stony Brook at 6:00am (ESPN). Louisville will face off against last year's runners-up, Butler in prime-time (8:00pm, ESPN)
