The 14th annual Pizza Hut Wabash Valley Classic tipped off Thursday.

Terre Haute North is hosting the 16 team tournament.

Officials say the format and teams this year are the same as ones from the past.

They are adding a most valuable player to this year's tournament.

That award is named after co-founder, Gary Fears.

"It's always good to see a lot of the older coaches that have coached over the years. I actually saw coach pat that used to coach at south. we were catching up. and it's good to see all the fans coming out around the holidays because a lot of people have time off from college and everywhere else. You know, get back together for kind of a reunion of sports," said Terre Haute North Athletic Director Shane Abrell.

The third place game will be shown live on WAWV. The championship game will be broadcast live on NBC 2 Monday at 8 p.m.
