Big Monday Quadruple-header?

When the Big East published the schedule I looked at the 3:30pm start time for the Villanova-Connecticut game and wondered if it was a typo. Searching for Billy Edelin reports that ESPN will package the game as the opening feature in a Martin Luther King Day quadruple header that will match Villanova at UConn at 3:30pm, Kansas State at Missouri at 5:30pm, Syracuse at Pittsburgh at 7:30pm with Kansas at Baylor at 9:30pm as the nightcap. That comes out to eight hours (more or less) of basketball featuring seven teams (sorry Connecticut fans) that will most likely begin the season in the AP Top 25. The 'Cats and Huskies, will match two of the conference's best point guards, Corey Fisher and Kemba Walker going head-to-head.
