Welcome This Year's Special Guest - Michael Linklater!

Every LIT, we bring in a special guest who has had a significant impact on basketball in Canada, Luther College High School, and the Luther Invitational Tournament. This year, for the 66th Annual LIT, we are honoured to announce our special guest, Michael Linklater! Mr. Linklater, a Saskatoon-born basketball player is ranked number one in 3-on-3 basketball in Canada, and sits around number thirteen in the world. Having played in LIT in his younger years, Michael Linklater has a connection with the tournament. Despite facing discrimination and racism due to his First Nations background, he is one of the strongest basketball players in Canada and continues to be an inspiration to First Nations children, and people of all backgrounds alike. We are so excited to announce his return to our tournament, and we are honoured to have him with us.
