— Arkansas will play in the Las Vegas Invitational this upcoming season, according to multiple reports.

The Razorbacks men's basketball team will take part in the event, Nov. 23-24 in Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. The field also includes Creighton, Arizona State and Wisconsin.

Two of those teams, Creighton and Wisconsin, played in last season's NCAA Tournament.

It will mark the first trip back to Las Vegas since Arkansas took on University of Nevada-Las Vegas during the 1989-90 season. UNLV won the national championship that same year.
