The Sun Devil men's hoops team will host Florida A&M (Nov. 18) and Cornell (Nov. 20) in the first two games of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational before meeting Arkansas on Friday, Nov. 23, at 4 p.m. PT/5 p.m. at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
The game will be broadcast on ESPN3, and the teams will play either Wisconsin or Creighton the next day. The winning teams will meet on Saturday at 8 p.m. PT on ESPN2, the losers at 5 p.m. PT on ESPN3.
Arkansas and the Sun Devils have met just once, as the No. 1 seeded Razorbacks beat the Bill Frieder-coached Sun Devils in the 1991 NCAA Tournament in Atlanta, 97-90.

Arkansas will enter its second season under Head Coach Mike Anderson and were 18-14 last year with signature wins over three ranked teams including SEC Tournament Champion Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Big 10 co-champion Michigan. The Razorbacks return 77 percent of their scoring and 73 percent of their rebounding from a year ago as well as second-team All-SEC guard BJ Young, the SEC's three-point percentage leader in Mardracus Wade and Hunter Mickelson who set an Arkansas school record for blocks in season by a freshman.
Arizona State is 8-6 in neutral site non-conference tournaments under Coach Sendek, visiting Orlando, Alaska, New York City, Anaheim and Maui in the past five seasons.
