TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona men's basketball player Kyle Fogg has accepted an invitation to participate in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, April 11-14, 2012, in Portsmouth, Va.
Now in its 60th year, the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (P.I.T.) is the only postseason event for college seniors prior to the NBA Pre-Draft Camp, and is now the only event to include actual game competition. Fogg is one of 64 college seniors invited to attend.
"I'm happy to be invited," said Fogg. "This is a great opportunity for me to play in front of professional scouts. Hopefully, I'll be able to use this opportunity to my advantage."
A 6-foot-3, 188-pound guard from Brea, Calif., Fogg led Arizona in scoring with a 13.5 points per game average in 35 appearances (34 starts). He shot 42.0 percent from the field (140-of-333), 44.4 percent from three-point range (72-of-162), and 78.9 percent (120-of-152) from the free throw line. Fogg scored in double figures 25 times, including seven games with 20 or more points, and posted two double-doubles.
A 2012 first-team all-Pac-12 honoree and a member of the league's all-defensive team, Fogg topped the Wildcats in three-point field goals (72), free throws (120) and steals (37), while averaging 3.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. He also was an all-District IX selection by the USBWA.
All P.I.T. participants are guaranteed to play three games as part of the showcase for both NBA and international scouts during the four-day event. Currently, there are 35 players on NBA rosters with P.I.T. experience.
