Temple standout Khalif Wyatt will participate in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament.

The annual event, which showcases 64 of the nation’s top college seniors, will be held at Churchland High School in Portsmouth, Va. on April 10-13. The PIT provides players an opportunity to display their skills in front of representatives from all 30 NBA franchises and overseas professional teams.

 Butler’s Rotnei Clark, Kansas’ Travis Releford, Arizona’s Mark Lyons and Notre Dame’s Jack Cooley are some of the other top players scheduled to participate in the event.

Wyatt is the Atlantic Ten Conference player of the year. He was also named an all-district selection by both the USBWA and NABC.

Wyatt averaged a conference-leading 20.5 points and scored 30 or more points on seven occasions this season. The Norristown native concluded his career with back-to-back 31-point performances in the second and third round of the NCAA tournament.
