Tim has already announced his excitement for the start of the college basketball season. Well, he’s not the only one who’s excited: ESPN is covering college basketball throughout its family of networks on Tuesday, including 12 different games on ESPN itself. Well, if ESPN is up for 24 hours of college basketball, then so is NPI. In Part I of IV, we’ll cover the 2 AM game (San Diego State at Saint Mary’s), and the 4 AM game (Northern Colarado at Hawaii).
6:10 AM: Well, Northern Colorado holds on to win 81-75. It’s probably for the best: I didn’t have another great pun about Jeremy Lay’s name lined up. I’m handing off to Tim now, as he covers the 6 AM game, featuring his hometown Monmouth. Be sure to stay with us throughout the day.
6:06 AM: Williams’ legs just aren’t holding up down the stretch. He air balled a shot a few minutes earlier and was short on his second free throw. That may spell the end for Hawaii, as they fall back down five with 11.9 seconds left.
