Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky will serve as co-hosts of the second Sun Belt Classic, a men’s basketball doubleheader set for Dec. 11 at Sommet Center.

This year, MTSU will play Vanderbilt and WKU will play the University of Tennessee.

Last year, the Blue Raiders played Memphis and the Hiltoppers played Tennessee. That event drew a crowd of better than 18,000.

MTSU and UT are in the fourth year of a five-year contract.

An official announcement regarding the event is expected later today.
