Tonight's schedule is rather light ... catching up on sleep from the Tip-Off Marathon perhaps? But that doesn't mean it lacks highlights.
With another Tip-Off Marathon is in the books and the flood of holiday tournaments begin tomorrow, the first Wednesday schedule of 2015-16 is a little light.

Tuesday's big winners included Maryland, Kentucky, Michigan State, and Tulsa. Here's your quick recap of the final hours of the Tip-Off Marathon and the rest of Tuesday's action.
Kentucky and Michigan State claimed wins at the Champions Classic, while Maryland now has Metro D.C. basketball bragging rights alongside George Washington. That and more in your recap of the first Tuesday of the 2015-16 season.

You probably missed some of the overnight hours of the Tip-Off Marathon. This post will catch you up on it and some of the other most interesting results from the first Monday of the new college basketball season.
The first half or so of ESPN's 2015 Tip-Off Marathon is in the books and did it ever deliver some excitement? Here's a quick look at what went down in the first half-dozen games along with a review of some of Monday's other interesting results.

I was invited to join The Student Section's College Basketball Media Roundtable for this season. In Part 1, we discussed numerous college basketball-specific issues, including several that are close to my heart cough*scheduling*cough

The panel is high-quality and I hope you enjoy reading our answers as much as I had writing my share. Part 2 runs on Awful Announcing tomorrow, just in time for the Tip-Off Marathon. 
A college basketball media roundtable begins with a look at the calendar and various scheduling issues.

The final post in my non-conference scheduling series looks at several mid-majors with at-large chances ranging from solid (Wichita State and Northern Iowa) to perhaps a bit more fanciful (Valparaiso and Iona).
In the final post of this series, I’ll not only look at the schedules of five Valley contenders but also those of 10 other squads who might have a case on Selection Sunday, though in most of these cases, many things will have to break right.

Kentucky, Maryland, Kansas, and North Carolina are the four No. 1 seeds in my one and only preseason bracket. It's not worth the paper it's printed on, but it's still a fun piece to write (and laugh at when March comes around)!
For the third season in a row, Kentucky begins the season by holding the No. 1 overall seed in Chris Dobbertean’s preseason bracketology. But the Wildcats' selection wasn't automatic.

In Part II of the College Hoops Media Roundtable at Awful Announcing, we discuss several questions about the presentation of college basketball on TV, including the CBS/Turner partnership and the possibility of announcer-less games.
This is Part II of a two-part College Basketball Media Roundtable with our friends over at The Student Section. You can read Part I here on scheduling, the importance of the regular season, a delayed start to the season, and much more. We also have two special guests on hand for these discussions:

The Tip-Off Marathon is now into Hour 17. Here's a look at what's to come between now and midnight Eastern.
Yes, the Tip-Off Marathon will roll on throughout the day, but there are other televised games during the first Tuesday of the season, including the launch of a new conference challenge series.

At 7:30 Eastern, the first men's game of ESPN's Tip-Off Marathon, Virginia at GW starts on ESPN2. Here's your guide to the first part of the Marathon and the rest of Monday night's action. Part two will run at a special early time on Tuesday morning.
The first Monday of the season features the beginning of ESPN's Tip-Off Marathon, which now extends for more than 24 hours.

There IS college basketball on the schedule today, including some potentially sneaky good games. Here's your quick viewer's guide.
If you need a break from the NFL, there will be plenty of college hoops to watch on the next few Sundays. Today’s slate won't match those of the next two, however.

In just a few minutes (at least from when I'm posting this at 11:00 a.m. Eastern), the 2015-16 Division I college basketball season begins in Ypsilanti, Michigan, where Eastern Michigan Athletics hosts the Vermont Catamounts in a game being streamed on ESPN3. So, it's probably a good time to post the viewer's guide to today's busy schedule.
Happy New Season! The first day and night of the 2015-16 college basketball campaign is focused more on quantity than quality.

More often than not, the Atlantic 10 Conference, Mountain West Conference, and West Coast Conference earn multiple bids to the NCAA Tournament. In the penultimate post in my series, I review the non-conference schedules of each league's main contenders. 
Once you start looking outside of the Power 6, a team’s at-large odds typically decrease significantly. But more often than not, the Atlantic 10, Mountain West, and West Coast conferences have multiple teams in contention.
