Ivan Pierre Aguirre-USA TODAY Sports

The UTEP men's basketball schedule continues to be rounded out as today the field for the 2013 Sun Bowl Invitational tournament was announced.

KTSM's Beau Bagley is reporting that the field has been set for the 2013 WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational. The teams that will be joining the Miners include Denver, Western Illinois, and Alcorn State.

On Saturday December 28th, former WAC and current Summit league member Denver will battle Alcorn State of the SWAC at 5PM. The Miners will face off against Western Illinois, also of the Summit League in the night cap. The consolation and championship games will be Sunday the 29th.

Denver is coming off a 22-10 season that saw them reach the second round of the NIT before falling to Maryland. Western Illinois also had a solid season, competing in the CBI before finishing 22-9. Alcorn State finished the year 10-24.

The Miners will be looking to capture their 30th title in the longstanding holiday tournament. The announcement of the field fills a couple more spots on the Miners' 2013-14 schedule, with the only game that is yet to be announced being the home game of the Battle for Atlantis tournament.
