Games were all part of a tip-off marathon which started with a game featuring Gonzaga on the West Coast and gradually worked across to the East Coast over a 24 hour period. Some great games including the Champions Classic with Michigan State, Kansas, Duke and Kentucky. I believe this is the second year that ESPN have shown the marathon. I am lucky enough to have Foxtel and look forward to more College games. I like the NBA but enjoy the college games more. The only drawback is a 35second shot clock and 2x 20 minute halves which tends to slow down the scoring but still plenty of action and athleticism.
Games actually started on veterans day (our remembrance day) with a game played on a portable court in a huge hangar at the Ramsted Air Force Base in Germany.

Best time of the year!! I actually enjoy the 35 second shot clock as you really get to see the teams set up their plays (credit to the coaches). Playing 4 quarters makes the game drag on at times. Anyone watch Dukes comeback against Kentucky?
