WAC commissioner Karl Benson said Tuesday the tournament ``has a national tradition that attracts top-caliber teams that we are excited to be a part of.''
The annual college basketball tournament is held over the Thanksgiving weekend, with some games televised nationally.
UAA athletic director Dr. Steve Cobb said the five-year agreement will provide exposure to the WAC and ensure a quality team for the shootout.
The WAC is comprised of Boise State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana Tech, Nevada, New Mexico State, San Jose State and Utah State.
