Even as the inaugural Cambodian Basketball League switches to play-offs mode later this month, youngsters take center stage this weekend when eight middle school sides line up at the Northbridge International School for the two-day 2013 MRISA Junior Tournament.

After an official opening ceremony at 8am, the first game is marked for a 9am start. The final game is slated for 5pm on Saturday.

The eight schools taking part include two from Phnom Penh (Northbridge International School and International School of Phnom Penh), three from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon South International School, International School of Saigon and Vietnam and International School of Ho Chi Minh City), two from Hanoi (United Nations International School and Hanoi International School), as well as Vientiane International School.

All schools are members of the Mekong River International Schools Association (MRISA), which hosts sports and cultural exchanges.
