Who got down at Portsmouth?

A computer issue as yet unresolved has kept us from blogging about basketball for seven days. ...The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament took place from April 7th through April 10th. The P.I.T. is a collection of NCAA Seniors that are split into teams who play in front of NBA talent scouts. Last year, Jon Brockman, Wesley Matthews, and DeMarre Carroll emerged from the showcase.

So who played well at the 2010 version? We go game by game - giving you the best player on the winning team and what they accomplished.

Day one:
A.J. Slaughter - W. Kentucky. 6'3" 180 PG, SG ...28 points in 21 minutes on 10-12 FG. w/ 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals.

Donald Sloan - Texas A&M 6'3" 205 PG, SG. (Pictured at left.) ...20 points, 6 rebounds, 8-12 FG in 32 minutes.








Day two:

Roderick Flemings - Hawaii. 6'7" 210 SG. ...14 points (7-7 FG), 6 rebounds, 4 assists in 27 minutes.

Tyren Johnson - Louisiana Lafayette 6'8" 204 SF. ...15 points (5-7 FG), 6 assists, 6 rebounds in 22 minutes

Jerome Randle - California. 5'10" 172 PG. ...18 points (7-13 FG), 10 assists, 4 steals in 31 minutes.

Randle (pictured at left) was named the MVP of the three-day tourney. Readers of this space know that we think Randle has an NBA future. His accurate shooting, ball-handling ability, and instant energy separate him from other small guards.


Day three:

Reggie Holmes - Morgan St. 6'4" 180 SG. ...22 points (7-11 FG), 7 rebounds in 23 minutes.

Jason Love
- Xavier. 6'9" 265 PF. ...11 points (5-9 FG), 7 rebounds, zero turnovers in 25 minutes.
