The Alabama men’s basketball team's first road game will also be its first national broadcast of the season.
The Crimson Tide will make its first ever appearance on the ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon when it plays at Dayton on Tuesday, Nov. 17. The Flyers and Crimson Tide will square off at noon CT on ESPN, according to a UA Athletics release.
The Marathon has become something of a tradition for college basketball fans, featuring over 24 hours of basketball at the start of every season across ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU.
