With the 2014-2015 college basketball season underway, it’s time for one of the best events in sports, and nope we aren’t talking a Oakland Raiders game. It’s time for the 24-hour Tip Off Marathon! That’s right fellow Junkies, 24 solid hours of college hoops to wet your beaks to start the road to March Madness. Its a thing of beauty. No matter what time you tune into the ESPN family of networks, guess what, there’s a freaking game of hoops on! So not only will I be all hopped up on Mountain Dew and Red Bull (feel free to sponsor), but I, Bizzle, will be picking every game of this blockbuster day. Yes, even the ladies’ games because ladies hoops need love too! Some teams I know better than others and some I couldn’t tell you anything about (nickname included) – like High Point for example. I’m no god of College Hoops but I AM A MAN (Mike Gundy Voice). I, Bizzle, #PutEmOnTheGlass and if A-Rob has the “Stones” he will do the same. But seeing as he is a Panthers fan and is still licking his wounds from Sunday, I wouldn’t count on it (sorry A-Rob fans). So here I go I’m about to throw a wet blanket at some of these picks and hope for the best!
