Eastern Kentucky University's men's basketball team is hosting an NCAA Selection Show party on Sunday night.

The Colonels (24-9) earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament by winning the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament last Saturday, its first title since 2007. EKU will learn its opponent during Sunday night's selection show on CBS.

The event will be held at the EKU Center for the Arts, located across the Eastern Bypass from Alumni Coliseum. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. The selection show begins at 6 p.m. A free concert by Sundy Best will follow at 7 p.m.

Members of the EKU Board of Regents, Foundation Board, Alumni Board, university administration, Colonel Club, men's basketball season ticket holders and team families are asked to obtain their preferred seating wrist band at the Center for the Arts box office, located in the lobby, upon arrival at the event.

Free T-shirts will be provided to the first 2,500 fans in attendance. Fans will be allowed to take a picture with the OVC championship trophy and wear the official OVC championship net while a highlight video plays on the big screen.

The team will be introduced and Coach Jeff Neubauer will speak to the crowd.

Complimentary snacks and beverages will be available. WCYO-FM 100.7 will broadcast live.
