Just because his Kentucky career is over, doesn’t mean Derek Willis is putting down a basketball anytime soon. After winning MVP honors at the Reese’s College All-Star Game, Willis will take his talents to Virginia for the Portsmouth Invitational.
The nation’s oldest amateur basketball tournament places 64 college seniors on eight teams to duke it out over four days in front of NBA and international scouts. Willis will team up with a few former foes: UCLA’s Bryce Alford, Duke’s Matt Jones and Louisville’s Mangok Mathiang.
Willis’ Sales Systems Ltd. team begins play Thursday at 9:00 p.m. Click here to see a full schedule.
