ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -The Western Athletic Conference will send one team to the Great Alaska Shootout each year under an agreement with the University of Alaska Anchorage.
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.
