    Default Jakeenan Gant Invited to The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament

    Awesome opportunity!

    "The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, or "PIT", is the oldest amateur basketball tournament in the United States and the only postseason camp restricted to college basketball seniors. The Portsmouth Invitational is the first of two NBA pre-draft camps, the other being the Orlando pre-draft camp."

    "Each year the basketball world focuses on Portsmouth as 64 of the nation's best college seniors participate in a four-day, twelve-game tournament. Scouts from every NBA Team are on-site to evaluate their talent.Today scouts from numerous international leagues have joined in on the annual April pilgrimage to Portsmouth.
    Over the years the P.I.T.has been a showcase for five of the 50 greatest players in NBA History (Rick Barry, Earl ?The Pearl? Monroe, Dave Cowens, John Stockton, Scottie Pippen) and for many others who have gone on to NBA stardom."

    April 17-20
