The 46th edition of BRIT kicked off yesterday at Bedford Road Collegiate. Twelve teams from across Saskatoon and three other provinces are taking part in the three-day tournament.

Glen Yang, a Calgary point guard, said the competition is intense. 

"It's very high," he said. "[Our] coach has said it's the most talented tournament in Western Canada, so each team it's going to be a close game and you don't know who's going to win."

B.C. coach Rich Goulet has attended the tournament 12 times. 

"It's a special tournament," he said. "There aren't any tournaments like this in B.C., where schools get together, everybody on staff, all the students working on it."
