All attention has been paid to the marquee marathon games. And for good reason.

Here are today’s links as we continue to indulge in continuous basketball:
The season is just a few days old, yet the UConn men's basketball team has made history. But it's not the kind of history anyone connected with the program had in mind. UConn was beaten again at home, again by a mid-major opponent.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell what happened in a game by just the stats. In the modern age, with all the new stats, it becomes even more of a cluster. However, there is one stat that sums up this game perfectly for the Broncos. They had 1 assist after playing 25 minutes of basketball.
UMass coughed up a sizable lead in the last four minutes at Ole Miss, but the future looks bright in Amherst after a 25 point, eight rebound, six assist night from freshman DeJon Jarreau.
After an impressive opening overtime win over La Salle, Temple's basketball team couldn't duplicate that performance over a hustling New Hampshire squad.
The first game of the post-Nick Norton era couldn't have gone any worse for UAB. The Blazers were routed in the second half by Furman and the Paladins ran away with an 84-74 win.
