Temple and three other Atlantic Ten schools will participate in the 2012 ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon on Nov. 13, the network announced on Wednesday. The Owls, Butler, Massachusetts, and Xavier will all play in the 24-hour slate of games.
Massachusetts will be the first A-10 team to tip-off in the marathon, hosting in-state rival Harvard at 10 a.m. Temple will immediately follow, playing at Kent State at noon.
Butler, in its first season in the Atlantic Ten, will play at Xavier at 4 p.m., but that game will be counted as a nonconference game. The two schools will meet again during conference play.
