How much of the 24-hour hoops marathon have you been able to watch? If you tried to stay up for the early-morning games and fell asleep on the couch, or had to head to work this morning and missed some of the action, fear not. NBCSports.com is here. Spend your lunch break with us and check out short recaps below, with a link to our full game story.

Stay tuned throughout the day for a whole slate of live coverage from NBC. We’ll have reporters in attendance for UMass-Harvard, St. John’s-Detroit, VCU-Wichita State, Kansas-Michigan State, and Kentucky-Duke.

In Case You Missed It:

Gonzaga 84, West Virginia 50

Gonzaga shot 9-of-16 from three-point range and 52 percent overall in a blowout win. The Bulldogs’ backcourt combination of Gary Bell, Jr., Kevin Pangos, and Guy Landry Edi combined for 42 points. West Virginia shot an abysmal 15-of-55 from the floor. (Full Game Story)

New Mexico 86, Davidson 81

The Lobos stormed back from a 14-point halftime deficit to escape with a win at home in the wee hours of the morning Tuesday. Tony Snell had 25 points and Kendall Williams had 17 points, including 13-of-14 from the free throw line. De’Mon Brooks led Davidson with 22 points. (Full Game Story)

Hawaii 70, Houston Baptist 63

While you were likely sleeping, Hawaii senior Vander Joaquim scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Warriors improved to 3-0 on the year. Art Bernardi scored 22 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the floor. Hawaii’s 38-27 advantage on the glass helped them to victory. (Full Game Story)

Stony Brook 54, Rider 46

A monster second half from Rider’s Nurideen Lindsey wasn’t enough, as Stony Brook took over in the final four minutes to seal a victory. Freshman Jameel Warney almost had a double-double with nine points and nine rebounds. Lindsey finished with 17 points. (Full Game Story)

Valparaiso 69, Northern Illinois 46

Reigning Horizon League Player of the Year Ryan Broekhoff scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, as the Crusaders shot 13-of-24 from three-point range. Matt Kenney supplemented the Valpo attack with 16 points. Northern Illinois was held to just 29 percent shooting. (Full Game Story)

Massachusetts 67, Harvard 64

UMass scored the last eight points of the game to spoil Harvard’s hopes of a win on the road. Costly Harvard turnovers down the stretch gave UMass a chance to win it with under 10 seconds remaining. Chaz Williams drove to the right side of the rim and kicked it out to Sampson Carter in the corner. Carter nailed the three with 1.2 seconds remaining. Harvard heave was short, and the Minutemen escape. (Full Game Story)

Temple 80, Kent State 66

Scootie Randall scored 30 points for the Owls in his return to the lineup after missing the entire 2011-12 season due to injury. The two teams combined to turn the ball over 40 times, but the Owls shot 53 percent from the floor to leave Ohio with the double-digit victory. (Full Game Story)
