Included is an 11 p.m. contest between San Diego St. and St. Mary's and the aforementioned 6 a.m. call time for Monmouth and St. Peter's. We can't imagine the players and coaches are too thrilled about playing a game with real implications WHEN THEY SHOULD STILL BE SLEEPING , but the university is making the most of the opportunity to host ESPN on their campus and get a nationally-televised game.
The entire Saint Peter's College community is in countdown mode as in 18 hours ESPN will be on the Jersey City campus as the Saint Peter's College Peacocks take on the Monmouth University Hawks on Tuesday, November 17th at 6am as part of ESPN's 24 Hours of College Basketball Marathon.College is fun. All-nighters at the basketball gym will be a memorable experience. Perhaps the alumni will drop in for some hoops before going to work. No better way to start a day than with a Peacocks win!
The Department of Athletics along with the Peacock Nation Club have 12 hours of fun and basketball ready for all students, faculty, staff and alumni to look forward to leading up to the game.
All festivities will begin at 9pm on Monday night as the doors to The Bubble will open for students to participate in "All Nighter" activities. For a full list of events leading up to the game.
Since this game is starting at 3 a.m. our time, we probably won't catch the action. But we'd greatly appreciate a final score update in the comments when we get up. Peacocks vs. Hawks: College basketball 2009 is on!
