Note to Players with Remaining NCAA Eligibility (e.g., 4th-Year Seniors who have one year of NCAA eligibility remaining due to the NCAA’s decision in the Fall of 2020 to grant all men’s basketball players at that time one extra year of eligibility due to COVID-19):
Please be advised that, due to NCAA rules governing the NBA pre-Draft process, participating in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament may adversely impact a college player’s ability to return to college to compete in NCAA Men’s Basketball during the 2022-23 season or any subsequent season. Thus, prior to accepting an invitation to participate in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, college players who wish to preserve the option of returning to college for the 2022-23 season should consult with their head coach and the compliance department at their educational institution to discuss how their remaining NCAA eligibility may be impacted by participation in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament.
