Default 10am College Hoops games...

ESPN is starting some games at awkward times for their tip-off Marathon. They had games through the night starting at midnight, going to 6am. I think all the tips were 11pm local, although not sure on Hawaii. Now, they got a game underway between Penn/Drexel tipping at 10am and apparently will have games on all day.

The one thing that this marathon of games does accomplish is give off an "opening day" type of feel, which I guess is what ESPN is going for with John Saunders just mentioning that and all.

The Penn/Drexel game is surprisingly efficient for 10 in the morning...

Interesting idea, but the midnight starting time was the weirdest to me. I don't really see the benefit of this. It's like a wannabe NCAA tournament opening day.
