    Diante Garrett invited to 2011 Portsmith Invite

    I just spoke with Iowa State associate head coach T.J. Otzelberger who told me that Diante Garrett has been invited to participate in the 2011 Portsmith Invitational.

    Basically, this is an event where guys can show off their talents in front of scouts, etc. Good for DG to be chosen for this. Something like 60 guys are invited each year.

    No surprise. I thought Jake would have a shot at this but evidently not. It's basically for 2nd rounders to undrafted players. Can't wait to see how DG does. He should thrive in that type of setting.

    Diante Garrett invited to 2011 Portsmith Invite

    I'm guessing this is only for seniors?

    That's impressive even if it is only for seniors.

    He should thrive in that type of up and down basketball, hope he does well.

    Nice work, DG! Isn't this the same camp Gilstrap was invited to last year?

    Jake and Jamie still have a shot. From what I understand, they're waiting to hear back from the event. DG is in though.

    Re: Diante Garrett invited to 2011 Portsmith Invite

    There's a huge advantage in being a point guard at camps like these. Since there's an every man for himself type of atmosphere at these workouts you get some guys who shoot every chance they get and then you have some players, mostly posts, who get pretty much ignored. DG isn't going to have to let some other player dictate how much he gets the ball, which really will benefit him.

    Good going DG. Now get into Coach Fred's office and ask him to give you the nuances the scouts are looking for.

    Getting that invite is a good sign for DG. Take it to the hole, DG, no one can stop you off the dribble!

    I now read this on Cyclones.com:

    Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg confirmed that seniors Jamie Vanderbeken and Darion "Jake" Anderson are on the alternate list for an invitation to Portsmouth.
    This is from the site you linked:

    Here are the confirmed invitees for each event. For the players on the Portsmouth list below, all of them have been invited, some have accepted the invitation, and some will be alternates.
