Live Blogging ESPN’s 24 Hours of College Basketball: Afternoon

We’re back for our third of four parts of our college basketball marathon. Between now and noon, we’ll be live blogging Northeastern v. Siena, Arkansas-Little Rock v. Tulsa, and Temple v. Georgetown. Tim will bookend the afternoon with the first half of the opener and the second half of the closer, while John S takes everything in-between.

Let’s see if JT III can top that with the Hoyas in their own timeout, down one with 55 seconds. It’s a clear two-for-one situation, and it’s inconceivable that they wouldn’t go to Monroe on either the block or the high post.
