Hamady Ndiaye gets camp invite

In what has been a difficult season on the court, Rutgers senior center Hamady Ndiaye is getting a piece of good news. He is putting up career-best numbers, and it was learned he is receiving an invitation to play in a prestigious camp against some of the top college seniors in the nation. Find out where he is going.

Even through the on-court struggles of the basketball team, senior center Hamady Ndiaye's play has piqued the curiosity of NBA scouts.

Ndiaye has been invited to play in the Portsmouth (Va.) Invitational Tournament, according to sources. The tournament, which runs April 7-10, is a showcase event for 64 college seniors, and gives players an opportunity to play in front of NBA scouts and front office personnel.

The 6-foot-11, 230-pound Ndiaye didn't begin playing basketball until he was 16 years old, and has developed into one of the nation's top shot blockers.

Ndiaye leads the Big East, and is third nationally, at 4.65 blocks per game. He is also averaging career highs of 9.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, and has taken over a larger role after the season-ending injury (and subsequent transfer) of starting center Greg Echenique.

The field is broken into eight teams, and last year six members of the field were selected in the two-round NBA draft.
