The ESPN Tip-Off Marathon is a night that has been highly anticipated by college basketball fans everywhere.

This event captures the nation's attention because as its name indicates, this is truly a marathon of hoops.

Starting tonight at midnight ET, ESPN will be running 24 hours (and possibly a few more) of non-stop college basketball games.

The event features teams from all over the country, and while there are some marquee matchups, there is something for everyone in each game of the night.

Here is the schedule of games that will be aired on ESPN's family of networks (via ESPN):

Midnight: West Virginia at Gonzaga 
2 a.m.: Davidson at New Mexico 
4 a.m.: Houston Baptist at Hawaii 
6 a.m.: Stony Brook at Rider 
8 a.m.: Northern Illinois at Valparaiso 
10 a.m.: Harvard at Massachusetts 
Noon.: Temple at Kent State 
2 p.m.: Detroit at St. John’s 
4 p.m.: Butler at Xavier 
7 p.m.: Michigan State vs. Kansas (Champions Classic, Georgia Dome, Atlanta) 
30 minutes following MSU/KU: Duke vs. Kentucky (Champions Classic) 

***All times are Eastern****

Analysis will begin with a preview of the first matchup, West Virginia at Gonzaga, and will continue throughout the whole marathon.

Apologies for gaps that will occur due to attending the first game, taking a stats midterm and general life activities such as eating and going outside.

Enjoy what promises to be an extremely entertaining night of college basketball!
