The basketball starts Nov. 20 and runs through Nov. 24. As always, Sullivan Arena is hosting the action.
In addition to Alaska Anchorage, the women’s field includes Utah State, North Dakota State and Prairie View A&M. Their tournament takes place Nov. 20-21.
The Alaska Anchorage men’s team will be in a bracket with Belmont, Charlotte, UC Riverside, Loyola Marymount, Northeastern, Texas State and Oral Roberts. Their tournament is scheduled for Nov. 21-24.
