College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon: Stanford vs. Colorado State

11:16 - This is it. As of right now, I’ve already been awake for more than 40 straight hours.

I’m taking Stanford by four, I’m watching them win and then I’m sleeping until Selection Sunday.

11:22 - I'm still on Kentucky/Kansas until the final horn sounds inside the Garden, but right now CSU is doubled up on Stanford, 12-6 after five minutes of play.

11:56 - CSU up 31-24 late in the first half on Stanford. Will be flipping over after Kentucky/Kansas.

12:02 - Stanford cuts the lead to 33-31 at the half.

12:17 - No more jokes. No more fun. No more commercials. Fingers on right hand hurt.

12:30 - Colorado State coach Tim Miles took some time to tweet during halftime.


I bet he punched those keys so hard.

12:32 - We are all tied up at 41. By the way, this is preseason NIT game. I'm not sure why I felt the need to point that out, but nothing makes sense in these times. I hate that last sentence but I don't have the motivation to delete it.

12:41 - Despite 13 turnovers, Stanford has built a 49-43 lead here eight minutes into the second half.

1:00 - It's 1 o'clock, which means I've now been awake for exactly 42 straight hours.

Stanford maintains a 54-50 lead with 3:16 to play. If they cost me a correct prediction in the final game of the marathon, so help me God I will cut down a tree.

1:03 - Breaking news: UCLA is terrible. I'm not willing to get any more creative or informative than that.

1:06 - The Stanford lead is six with just over a minute to play. Not that I'm counting or anything. Oh, and if this goes to overtime, I will kill myself.

1:12 - FINAL SCORE: Stanford 64, Colorado State 52

It's over.

Game Rating:4

Actually not that bad, but...I just had nothin' left.

Prediction Result: 13-2

Not a bad showing.

Consumption: Nothing

Because not consuming anything for that last hour is what's going to keep this whole experience from being a bad one for my body.

I have been awake for over 42 straight hours, I have been watching and blogging about college basketball for over 25 straight hours. I am going to bed now.
