Concordia University to host LIT on January 6 and 7

Concordia University will host the second annual Lutheran Invitational Basketball Tournament (LIT) on January 6 and 7.  All games will be played at the Walz Human Performance Complex. 

Lutheran High Northeast (Norfolk), Heartland Lutheran (Grand Island), Concordia High School (Omaha) and Lincoln Lutheran make up this year’s tournament field.  Lutheran High Northeast won the tournament championship in the girls’ bracket, while Heartland Lutheran claimed the championship in the boys’ bracket last year.

The initial tournament pairings were determined based on NSAA point leader rankings from the third week in December.  Games are scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. on January 6.  A complete schedule of games is listed below.  Fans can also find tournament information via the Concordia University athletics website.

LIT tickets may be purchased at the door for one-day admission.  Ticket prices are $6 for adults and $4 for students (K-12).  Doors will be open 45 minutes before the start of the first game on each day. 

A six-person LIT All-Tournament team will be announced following the completion of the championship games.  A traveling trophy will be awarded to the championship teams.  Following the tournament, the Concordia University basketball teams will host Dordt College at 5 and 7.
