FGCU point guard Brett Comer has accepted an invite to the 2015 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (PIT), according to the school.
Comer will join 63 other college seniors to compete in twelve games over four days in front representatives from every NBA team as well as international scouts. The prospects are split into eight teams to showcase their talents, although the full rosters have not yet been released. The Portsmouth Invitational doesn't usually contain many elite, first round picks, but Jimmy Butler is the latest PIT product to make his mark in the NBA.
The Tournament takes place April 8-11 in Portsmouth, Virginia. Last year, the games were live streamed for free online for the first time. Marcus Thornton (William & Mary), Pat Connaughton (Notre Dame), and Sir’Dominic Pointer (St. John's) are just a few of the players who have already been confirmed to be competing in this year's tournament.
After a phenomenal senior season, Comer will put his game on display in hopes of getting a shot at the NBA. The Orlando, Fla. product concluded his Florida Gulf Coast career 23rd on the NCAA list of career assist leaders. He dished out a career high 7.0 assist per game this year. His 2.90 assist/turnover ratio was also well above previous seasons.
After the Portsmouth Invitational, the Eagles all-time career assist record holder will likely have a chance to workout with some NBA teams. Fellow FGCU basketball alum Sherwood Brown (Maine Red Claws) worked out with numerous teams following his senior season.
