For a fifth consecutive year, ESPN will open the college basketball season with a 24-hour marathon of hoops, starting at midnight ET Tuesday, Nov. 13. The 11-game slate features 12 NCAA tournament teams from last season, including this dandy of a heavyweight battle: Michigan State-Kansas (7 p.m. ET). The game precedes Duke-Kentucky, the event's other headliner, and pits last year's Big Ten and Big 12 champions. See the full schedule.
