Jun. 25—The New Mexico men's basketball team will host Jacksonville (Ala.) State, North Dakota State and Northern Colorado in the Lobo Classic, to be held Nov. 25-27 at the Pit.

It will be UNM's first in-season home tournament in 15 years.

The tournament will feature a round-robin format with each team playing each of the others over the three days.

Each day will feature a doubleheader, with the schedule and ticket sales to be announced at a later date. Season-ticket renewals are on sale at golobos.com, and new season tickets will be available later this summer, UNM said Friday.

UNM's nonconference schedule is at 11, with a road game and a home game vs. one of the state's non-Division I teams to be added to make it 13.
