We already knew that Temple will host Kent State on November 11, and that La Salle will host Quinnipiac on November 12.

We now know the tip times for those games - and that both games will be on national television.

That's right. Both games will be part of this year's college basketball tip-off marathon on the ESPN family of networks. 

Here's the full slate of games for the marathon, which this year runs for a total of 29 hours or so:

10:00 p.m.: Kansas vs. Duke, ESPN (Champions Classic at United Center/Chicago, Ill.)

* - Are Florida Gulf Coast kids capable of doing anything at that hour? Also, Hartford is coached by former La Salle and Penn assistant John Gallagher. So there's another reason to watch, even though "Dunk City" creator Andy Enfield isn't in Fort Myers anymore.
