Norfolk State senior center Kyle O'Quinn has accepted an invitation to play in next month's Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. The annual showcase for college seniors, attended and scouted by numerous NBA personnel, will be held April 11-14 at Churchland High School.
The 6-foot-10, 240-pound O'Quinn was the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference player of the year and the league defensive player of the year after averaging 15.9 points, 10.3 rebound and 2.7 blocks per game. His 20 double-doubles tied for fifth-most in the nation, and he had 26 points and 14 rebounds as the 15th-seeded Spartans upset No. 2 seed Missouri, 86-84, in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Other players scheduled to compete in the PIT, now in its 60th year, include Virginia's Mike Scott, Missouri's Ricardo Ratliffe, Xavier's Tu Holloway and Georgetown's Jason Clark.
