Lang, Capel at pre-draft invitational this week

Kris Lang and Jason Capel are among 54 of the nation's top college seniors who will be attending the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in Portsmouth, Va. this week.

NBA scouts will be in full force to watch potential draft picks. In past years, the Invitational has been a lower-level event, skipped by many big name players, but with the elimination of the Nike Desert Classic, Portsmouth has a much greater importance to both players and scouts.

Seven ACC standouts will be in attendance, including Lang and Capel. The others are:

Byron Mouton (Maryland)
Darius Songaila (Wake Forest)
Tony Akins (Georgia Tech)
Chris Williams (Virginia)
Anthony Grundy (NC State)

The evening games are from Wednesday, April 3 to Saturday, April 6 at Churchland High School.
