The network announced Wednesday that the fifth annual day of
hoops will start Nov. 13 at midnight EDT with West Virginia at

Eleven games will follow, capped by the marquee doubleheader in
Atlanta's Georgia Dome.

Sixteen conferences will be represented in the marathon. Despite
Butler and Xavier both being in the Atlantic 10, their game in
Cincinnati will be a nonconference matchup since it was scheduled
before Butler joined the conference for this season.

Eight schools will make their debut in the marathon: Davidson,
Detroit, Harvard, Houston Baptist, New Mexico, Northern Illinois,
Valparaiso and Xavier.
