Officials with the Sun Bowl Association and WestStar Bank have announced the teams coming to El Paso for the 57th Annual WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational.

The four-team tournament include East Tennessee State University, Norfolk State University, University of Wyoming and UTEP.

"We appreciate all the hard work that the Sun Bowl committee puts into hosting this tournament, and finding quality opponents to compete in it year in and year out," said UTEP Rodney Terry.

East Tennessee State is making its first appearance in the oldest collegiate holiday basketball tournament in the nation, while Wyoming is making its second appearance.

This is Norfolk State’s third appearance in the Invitational after making it to the championship game in 2015. The Miners have played in every tournament since it began in 1961.

The event will be held at the Don Haskins Center from Dec. 21-22.
