D.J. Newbill to Participate in Portsmouth Invitational Tournament


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.
