For the second straight year, the CBE Classic will include a team that has played in the previous season’s Final Four. This time, it’s Wichita State. The Shockers will be joined in the field by Texas, DePaul and Brigham Young. The CBE will take place Nov. 25-26 at the Sprint Center.

Wichita State, the West Region champion, will take on Louisville in Saturday’s national semifinal.

Last year, Kansas, coming off its Final Four season, won the championship.

Wichita State played in the CBE in 2009, falling to Pittsburgh and defeating Iowa for third place. Texas won the tournament that year, and the Longhorns also won the CBE in 2005.
