BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - Defending national champion Duke and fellow Final Four participant Kentucky will meet in one game of the State Farm Champions Classic while Michigan State, which was also in the Final Four, faces Kansas in the other.

The doubleheader caps ESPN’s eighth annual College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon which will feature 15 men’s games and one women’s - defending national champion Connecticut at Ohio State.

The marathon starts at 5:30 p.m. EST Monday, Nov. 16, with the women’s game. It concludes with the doubleheader from Chicago’s United Center, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Between the Chicago games, ESPN will show Georgetown at Maryland, the first time those local rivals have met since 2008.

The early morning matchups have Green Bay at East Tennessee State (6 a.m.), Stephen F. Austin at Northern Iowa (8 a.m.), and Valparaiso at Rhode Island (10 a.m.).
