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.

Jacksonville State is coming off a 22-11 season and its second NCAA Tournament appearance in six years, having lost to Auburn in the NCAA first round last March.

North Dakota State went 23-10 and reached the Summit League title game for the sixth time in the past eight seasons.

Northern Colorado posted a 22-16 record, finishing runner-up in the Summit League and reaching the quarterfinals of the CBI.

The Lobos were 13-19 last season, coach Richard Pitino’s first at UNM.

The Lobos have never faced Jacksonville State or North Dakota State and are 4-0 all-time against Northern Colorado, with the last matchup an 86-52 home victory in 2004-05.
