A big weekend for Will Clyburn

Will Clyburn received not one, but two honors over the weekend in Atlanta. 

Clyburn, who scored 17 points with eight rebounds in Friday’s Reese’s College All-Star game, was named the MVP of the West team that lost 87-81. Iowa State’s Fred Hoiberg was Clyburn’s coach in the game. 

Note: That you can watch a replay of this game on CBS this Sunday at 1 p.m.

That wasn’t it though. On Saturday, Clyburn was officially invited to participate in the 61st annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament that will occur April 10-13 in Portsmouth, Va. 

Former Cyclones that have participated in this event since 2001 are Diante Garrett, Marquis Gilstrap, Jiri Hubalek, Jared Homan Jackson Vroman, Paul Shirley and Martin Ranik.
