Fells to Play in 2009 P.I.T.


The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament has been showcasing the cream of the crop from each year's Senior class year in and year out since 1953. The P.I.T. is a 4-day, 12 game tournament, that features 64 of the top college basketball players (Seniors) in the country. Representatives from every NBA team as well as representatives from professional basketball teams overseas come to watch what the Senior class has to offer. This year's tournament will be held at Churchland High School in Portsmouth, Viginia on April 8-11.
We are excited that Courtney Fells will be playing in this years P.I.T. on the K&D Rounds Landscaping team. Here is rest of the crew Courtney will be suiting up with:

Baynes, Aron - Washington State
Dozier, Robert - Memphis
Fells, Courtney - NC State
Jackson, Stefon - Texas-El Paso
Rogers, Kevin - Baylor
Baron, Jimmy - Rhode Island
Eaton, Byron - Oklahoma State
Steele, Ronald - Alabama

The action starts for Courtney and the gang on Wednesday night at 7pm as they face off against Sales Systems Ltd. Here is the roster of the competition:

VanderMeer, Scott - Illinois-Chicago
Bramos, Michael - Miami (Ohio)
Carter, Josh - Texas A&M
Pendergraph, Jeff - Arizona State
Rivers, K.C. - Clemson
Simpson, Diamon - St. Mary
Delaney III, Paul - UAB
McAlarney, Kyle - Notre Dame

If Courtney's team wins they will play on Friday, April 10th at 7pm. If they lose they will play on Thursday, April 9th at 3:15pm.

The tickets for this event are $10 for a day ticket, or $30 for all 4 days (12 games). The tickets for the consolation games on Thursday and Friday are FREE. You can buy the tickets via Ticketmasteror you can buy them at the gate prior to game time. The talent pool in this tournament is sick. If you live within driving distance, it would be well worth the price of admission to take the trip. Don't believe me...check out the rest of the players that will be there. We hope some of you get the chance to go support Courtney. We will keep you posted on how he does after each game, so stay tuned.

    Thanks to Courtney. He kept a positive attitude during his years as a Wolfpacker.

    ken,
    sure do, he was doing big things at Bama early on. He should catch on with a team, I'd guess.

    Didn't see this posted anywhere, but it looks like Big Ben will be playing on a pretty stacked team (Tyrese Rice, Taylor Griffin, Goran Suton, AJ Abrams, etc) in this tournament as well.

    Good luck to Courtney and Ben!

    Also, I've followed this site closely and really appreciate everything you guys are doing to provide up to date and fresh info!

    Brandon-
    Thanks a lot for the update! Last night I saw that Ben's name was on the list but they didn't have him on a roster at that point. He must have been a late add. We'll have a write-up on Ben later tonight. Thanks for your support!

    i think fells has the most to gain from this event,its the perfect place for him to showcase his skills. he has so much potential its scary,unfortunately he only showed glimpses of what hes capable of while at state. i believe all he needs to do is get with the right people,or person and they could do wonders with him. there are so many scouts (overseas and nba) and gms at this event its ridiculous. its a great event that i enjoy riding up to each yr,it'll be nice seeing courtney and big ben there,unlike at the state games,you can actually get a chance to talk with the guys while their sitting in the bleachers in between games,i wish both of them the best of luck
