A look at the major high school basketball tournament in Kelowna

One of the biggest high school basketball tournaments in the province will take place in Kelowna this weekend.

The 48th Annual Interior Savings Western Canada Basketball Tournament will be held at Kelowna High School (KSS) from Thursday, February 2 through Saturday, February 4.

The eight-team tournament includes: Kelowna Secondary School, Vancouver College (Vancouver), Sir Winston Churchill SS (Vancouver), Semiahmoo SS (Surrey), Oak Bay HS (Victoria), Ross Sheppard HS (Edmonton), John Taylor Collegiate HS ( Winnipeg) and St. Paul’s HS (Winnipeg).

In the latest provincial rankings, Semiahmoo is ranked number one in British Columbia, with Vancouver College in second and Oak Bay in third. KSS is ranked eighth while Sir Winston Churchill is ninth.

Thursday night will see a dunk contest while a three-point contest will take place on Friday night.

The KSS women’s team will play exhibition games at 11 a.m. each of the three days to get the action started.

Community Recreational Initiatives Society (CRIS) Adaptive Adventures, a Kelowna nonprofit, partnered with Interior Savings for the event. Throughout the tournament, for every three-point KSS, Interior Savings will donate $50 to CRIS.

The tournament begins at 1:45 p.m. Thursday when Sir Winston Churchill takes on Oak Bay.
