Alabama senior guard Trevor Releford will participate in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, which is slated to begin on today in Portsmouth, Va.
The four-day, 12-game tournament, is in its 62nd year and is one of the top professional showcases in the nation. The tournament features 64 seniors from various NCAA programs. Scouts from every NBA franchise and numerous professional leagues will be there.
Releford will compete as a member of the K&D Rounds Landscaping squad. His team will open up at 6 p.m. today with games following on Friday and Saturday.
He enters the event after a successful senior season in which he averaged 18.5 points, 3.1 assists and 2.2 steals per game – all of which led Alabama. He topped the SEC in steals and was fifth in scoring on his way to first-team all-conference and all-district honors.
The Kansas City, Mo., native finished his career as the program’s all-time leader in steals (263), steals per game average (1.9) and total games played (134) and ranks fourth in total points scored (1,873).
