It might only be for a couple games, but the University of New Mexico men's basketball team will get some of the national exposure they want on ESPN for the next four years.

UNM head coach Steve Alford said this week on an interview with 610 The Sports Animal that the school agreed to a four-year deal with ESPN to participate in multiple in-season exempt tournaments beginning in 2013.

The Lobos will travel to Charleston, SC next season to participate in the Charleston Classic from November 21-24.

The tournaments give the Lobos the national exposure Alford wants on the ESPN family of networks.
