Barring Air Force winning the Mountain West Conference Tournament this week and getting an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament, the Falcons will host a tournament game at Clune Arena next Tuesday, Air Force spokesman Troy Garnhart said.

Garnhart and associate athletic director Jim Trego met with CIT selection committee chairman Riley Wallace in Las Vegas and an agreement was struck for Air Force to host a game Tuesday. If the Falcons win that game they'll host another CIT game on Thursday.

The Falcons don't know the opponent or what time Tuesday's game will be, but ticket information will be available on Air Force's website as details are finalized.

The Falcons are 15-14 entering Thursday night's conference tournament game against UNLV.
