The annual basketball tournament provides college scholarships to Latino students

FILE PHOTO - The Oregon Latino Basketball Tournament began in 1983 and has since grown to attract dozens of teams and hundreds of players across the Pacific Northwest.
The 28th annual Oregon Latino Basketball Tournament and Youth Jam is ready to tip off this weekend.

The OLBT benefits the Latino Educational and Recreational Network, a Gervais-based non-profit provides scholarships to Latino and Hispanic students seeking educational opportunities after high school.

This year's tournament is scheduled to take place over two weekends at the Sparks Athletic Center at Willamette University in Salem.

The Adult Tournament will tip off on Friday and go through Sunday with four five-on-five brackets for men and women, along with one for athletes 35-years and older.

The Youth Jam will take place the following weekend on March 31, featuring a 3-on-3 tournament for kids from kindergarten through high school.
