It was announced on Wednesday that Nevada Wolf Pack senior guard Marcus Marshall accepted an invitation to play in the 2017 Portsmouth Invitation Tournament.
For the uninitiated, the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (P.I.T) is an invite only event where college players, who have just finished their senior season, get to showcase their skills in front of numerous NBA and international scouts.
Only 64 players will get an invite to play in this four-day, 12 game tournament that is held at Churchland High School in Portsmouth, Virginia next month.
Wolf Pack head coach Eric Musselman said in a press release about Marshall’s P.I.T invite that “We are so happy and proud of Marcus.” Musselman also went on to say that “This is a great start to his pro career.”
In his lone season with the Wolf Pack, Marshall, a transfer from Missouri State, averaged 19.7 points and 3.7 assists for Nevada. He was an All-Mountain West first team selection while being a key player in the Wolf Pack winning the Mountain West regular season and conference tournament championships this past season.
Marshall also set the school season record in made three-pointers with 115 while shooting 38 percent from the three-point line. He also shot 42 percent from the field and 82 percent from the free throw line.
I would like to wish the best of luck to Marcus Marshall on his invite to the P.I.T and his future endeavors in the game of basketball.
The Portsmouth Invitational will be from April 12th through April 15th.
