WASHINGTON - Georgetown University men’s basketball player Rodney Pryor (Evanston, Ill./Notre Dame Prep/Robert Morris) will play in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament this week in Virginia.
Pryor was one of 64 of the best college basketball players (all seniors) from across the nation invited to participate in the four-day, 12-game tournament in front of representatives from every NBA team, as well as teams from overseas. The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, in existence since 1953, will be held from Wednesday, April 12 to Saturday, April 15 at the Churchland High School Sports Complex in Portsmouth.
Pryor, a graduate student who earned honorable mention All-BIG EAST honors, led Georgetown in scoring, and ranked third in the BIG EAST, with 18.0 points per game. He tied for the team lead in rebounds with 5.0 per game. Pryor hit a team-best 84 3-point field goals and ranked third in the BIG EAST in that category. His 577 points this season rank No. 15 all-time for a single season at Georgetown, while his 84 3-pointers are the second-most in a single season and he is tied for third all-time with 204 attempts from long distance.
Pryor transferred to Georgetown from Robert Morris, where he was a two-time All-Northeast Conference selection.
Most recently, Pryor won the 29th annual State Farm College Slam Dunk Contest at Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Ariz., during the Final Four.
