EDISON, N.J. – Iona College and Manhattan College will both participate in ESPN’s 24-hour College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon on Tuesday November 18.

“It is great that MAAC schools have agreed to participate in ESPN’s 24-hour College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon, which for fans has become the official start of the college basketball season,” notes Richard J. Ensor, Commissioner of the MAAC. “The MAAC is looking forward to the 2014-15 season as the league builds on its strong 2014 postseason success and begins a new year which all teams want to see end at the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y. with a MAAC Championship Trophy and an automatic bid to NCAA March Madness!”

2013-14 MAAC Regular Season champions and preseason favorite, Iona College will travel to Spartanburg, South Carolina to face Wofford College at 7:00am ET on ESPN2. The Gaels began their 2014 campaign with a 78-73 victory over Cleveland State on Friday at Hynes Athletic Center in New Rochelle, N.Y.

2013-14 MAAC Championship champions, Manhattan College will be headed to Amherst, Massachusetts to open up the season against UMass at 11:00am ET on ESPN2 during the marathon. The Jaspers, which were selected third in the preseason polls, opened up the season at ACC opponent Florida State on Saturday where they fell 81-66.

The 2015 season culminates at the 2015 MAAC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York March 5-9. Tickets for the championships are available online at ticketmaster.com.
