The college basketball season is here, and ESPN will showcase many of the team’s the College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon by providing more than 24 hours of consecutive basketball coverage over the next 24 hours.
The Champions Classic will be the must-watch event of the 24-hour marathon when the No. 2 Michigan State Spartans faces the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats at 7:30 p.m., followed by the No. 4 Kansas Jayhawks meeting the No. 5 Duke Blue Devils at 9:30 p.m.
The Wildcats entered the season boasting one of the best backcourts in the nations with James Young paired with the Harrison twins to form a 3-guard combo of three players who entered college as top-10 recruits.
The Spartans will have arguably the best veteran backcourt in the nation in Keith Appling, Denzel Valentine and Gary Harris. Harris is the player NBA scouts are drooling over the most, and watching him matchup against one of the Harrison twins will be a fierce battle to watch.
