The annual Tip-off Tournament for Northwest and Southwest Class A high school basketball teams is Friday and Saturday, December 13-14.

The Bitterroot Valley boys and girls teams from Hamilton, Stevensville and Corvallis will be heading to the Polson High School and Ronan High School gyms this weekend for opening games against Anaconda, Frenchtown, Columbia Falls, Bigfork, Ronan, Libby, Dillon, Polson and Whitefish.

The round robin event is the official beginning for the high school teams’ basketball season – which only runs for two weeks in December, then bounces into full swing in January, after Christmas and New Year’s.

KLYQ Radio will be broadcasting selected games during the season of both Bronc and Lady Bronc games – trying to provide a 50-50 split in coverage.

The two broadcast games from the tournament this weekend will be a Lady Bronc game Friday at 6:00 p.m. and a Bronc game Saturday morning at about 11 a.m. We will have the games on the air at 1240 AM and will stream it on-line at Just punch the “Listen Live” button.
