ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball senior Zak Irvin has been selected for the annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, set for Wednesday through Saturday (April 12-15), which annually features some of the top seniors in the country.
The Portsmouth Invitational, a four-day, 12-game tournament, draws 64 of the best seniors in the country to play in front of representatives from every NBA team and international scouts. The tournament begins on Wednesday, although Irvin, who is on K&D Rounds Landscaping, will not play until Thursday (April 13) at 9 p.m. Each team is guaranteed to play at least three games.
Irvin will be joined on K&D Rounds Landscaping by Justin Tuoyo (Tennessee-Chattanooga), Jacob Wiley (Eastern Washington), Jimmy Hall (Kent State), Marquise Moore (George Mason), Bronson Koenig (Wisconsin), Kadeem Allen (Arizona) and Jeremy Senglin (Weber State).
Irvin and Koenig are two of five Big Ten players competing in the event along with Malcolm Hill (Illinois), Marc Loving (Ohio State) and Tai Webster (Nebraska).
During his four-year career at Michigan, Irvin tied former teammate Jordan Morgan (2011-14) for most games played in U-M history at 142 while starting 104 games. He scored 1,610 points (13th), grabbed 531 rebounds (t-39th) and made 241 three-point field goals (3rd).
In his final season, Irvin was one of three players to start all 38 games while averaging 13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. Earning All-Big Ten Tournament honors for the second straight year, he helped the Wolverines win four games in four days and become the first No. 8 seed to win the Big Ten Tournament. With an automatic bid to his third NCAA Tournament, Irvin helped the Maize and Blue reach the Sweet 16.
