This year marks the 35th year of the annual tournament, which originally began in 1974.
Teams participating in this year’s tournament are: Bishop’s University, University of Toronto and University of Cape Breton.
“We try to change up the teams [in the tournament] from year to year,” said head coach Dave DeAveiro. Last year the tournament hosted McGill, UPEI and Guelph.
This will be the first time the Gee-Gees compete against the University of Cape Breton.
The McGill Redmen scored a three-point basket with only 16.6 seconds left in the game to defeat the Gee-Gees 75-74 in the championship game of the Jack Donohue Tip-off last year.
uOttawa alumnus Dax Dessureault (Embrun, Ont.) was named one of the tournament all-stars.
