MEMPHIS - The University of Memphis will play host to UTEP in the second round of the TiVo NIT Tuesday in The Pyramid.
Tuesday's game time has not been determined. Tip-off will be at 7 p.m. unless the game is picked up for broadcast by ESPN which would likely move the start time to 8 p.m.
Tickets are currently on sale at the University of Memphis ticket office for $15. Tickets for U of M students are $5.
Memphis, 18-14, advanced to the second round of the NIT with Tuesday's 71-62 win at Utah. UTEP, 23-8, defeated McNeese State 84-74 in its first-round game Wednesday in El Paso, Texas.
The winner of the Memphis/UTEP game will take on the winner of Pepperdine/New Mexico later in the week at a site to be determined.
