Gibbs to Participate in Portsmouth Invitational Tournament
DAVIDSON, N.C. – Davidson’s Jack Gibbs will compete in the 65th Annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament this week in Portsmouth, Va., as announced Monday afternoon.
For the past 64 years the P.I.T has invited 64 of the best college basketball players (seniors) from across the nation to participate in a four-day, 12-game tournament in front of representatives from every NBA team.
The 2017 P.I.T. tips off Wednesday, April 12 and will end Saturday, April 15. The fourth Wildcat (Jake Cohen – 2013, De’Mon Brooks – 2014, Tyler Kalinoski – 2015) in the last five years to participate, Gibbs will be a member of the Portsmouth Sports Club.
A three-time all-conference selection, Gibbs is the first player in school history with 1,500/2,000 points, 400 rebounds and 400 assists. He also finished his career third on Davidson's all-time scoring list with 2,036 career points, behind Stephen Curry (2,635) and John Gerdy (2,483).
In addition, Gibbs ranks among the program's all-time leaders in assists (466/5th), 3-pointers made (255/4th), free-throws made (487/1st), free-throw percentage (.820/4th) and steals (161/5th).
The native of Westerville, Ohio, is also the first player to lead the league in scoring in back-to-back seasons since Temple's Dionte Christmas (2006-09).
During his four-year standout career, the Wildcats posted an 81-49 overall record, 47-23 conference mark, won two regular season titles, two conference tournament crowns and appeared in three postseason tournaments, including the school's first-ever at-large selection in 2015.
