PLAYER SELECTION PROCESS FOR THE
PORTSMOUTH INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT
The PIT has a field of 64 players each year. Players considered for the PIT must be seniors in good academic and athletic department standing.
Players must certify that they have not been “paid to play” in any basketball game or tournament in accordance with NCAA By-Laws 2-3(I).
Players are selected for invitation to the PIT by the Player Selection Committee.
The PIT considers players from NCAA Divisions I, II and III; as well as NAIA for inclusion in the tournament.
When a player is selected, an invitation is sent to the men’s basketball office at their school. They are given a deadline to respond in order to reserve their spot in the tournament. Failure to respond by the deadline may result in the player being dropped for consideration and another player being invited in his place.

Replacement players are responsibile for their own travel expenses to and from Portsmouth. The PIT will cover food and lodging during the tournament.

This information will be kept on file and players will be contacted only if they are selected for invitation to the tournament.
