D.J. Newbill to Participate in Portsmouth Invitational Tournament

2

No surprise here, but D.J. Newbill will be among the 64 college seniors participating in the annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, held in Portsmouth, VA from April 8-11. The PIT is the de-facto NBA combine for a lot of prospects, as most projected first rounders and overseas prospects are not eligible for the three-day tournament. Newbill will play for team Cherry Bekaert (the name of a local sponsor, if you were wondering) along with fellow B1G alum Amir Williams of Ohio State, as well as VCU star Treveon Graham and three-time Ivy League first-team performer Wesley Saunders. The second-shortest member of his team, Newbill should have an opportunity to showcase some of his lead guard skills with NBA scouts watching.
