Well, not exactly. But Ashton Gibbs, and maybe Nasir Robinson, have a good shot at getting into the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. Last year, Pitt sent Brad Wanamaker, Gilbert Brown, and Gary McGhee to the tournament for potential NBA Draft picks. The tournament this year will be held from April 11 - 14 in Portsmouth, Virginia. If you happen to be in town, the games are inexpensive (or free in some cases).

The rosters are being announced and while thus far Gibbs and Robinson aren't in, plenty of familiar Big East names are.

From the Big East, Georgetown's Henry Sims and Jason Clark will be there. Syracuse's Scoop Jardine, Louisville's Kyle Kuric, and Cincinnati's Yancy Gates are all slated to show up as well.

Getting back to Pitt, Gibbs could be a question mark, obviously, based on the ankle injury that kept him out of the last two games of the CBI finals against Washington State. Though, you have to figure that since the tournament isn't for another nine days, he could be ready to play by then. Gibbs has to do all he can to impress the scouts since he didn't have a great season, so it's hard not to see him playing unless the injury is too severe.

Here's the roster page and additional players should be added here.
