WASHINGTON - The postseason tour continues this weekend for Georgetown University senior men's basketball player Markel Starks (Accokeek, Md./Georgetown Prep), who was selected to play in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in Virginia this week.
The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament will be held from Wednesday, April 16 to Saturday, April 19 at the Churchland High School Sports Complex in Portsmouth.
Since 1953, the P.I.T. has invited 64 of the best college basketball players (seniors) from across the nation to participate in a four-day, 12-game tournament in front of representatives from every NBA team.
Starks played in the Reese's Division I College All-Star Game during Final Four weekend, scoring 10 points, grabbing four rebounds and handing out four assists to help the East All-Stars to an 85-75 win over the West All-Stars.
A two-year captain and two-time All-BIG EAST selection, Starks was named to the All-BIG EAST First Team as a senior and earned third team honors as a junior.
Starks finished second on the team in scoring, averaging 17.3 points, and led the team with 4.1 assists per game. He ranked fifth in the BIG EAST in scoring, was seventh in the league in assists and second in free throw percentage (87.0%). In addition, he ranked 12th in three-point field goals made (1.7), ninth in assist/turnover ratio (1.8, 135 assists,76 turnovers) and third in minutes played (37.0). Overall this season, he played 91.8 percent of the team's minutes (1,222-of-1,330) played.
Starks passed the 1,000-point mark for his career in January, becoming the 44th player in program history to pass that mark. He finished his career with 1,246 points in 126 games (9.9 ppg) and ranks 26th all-time in scoring in Georgetown history. Starks also ranks tied for fifth all-time in three-point field goals made (165), fifth in three-point attempts (459), tied for 20th in three-point percentage (35.9%), seventh in free throw percentage (81.3%) and 19th all-time in assists (300).
