Notae and Umude will play at the Portsmouth Invitational
FAYETTEVILLE- Razorbacks JD Notae and Stanley Umude will compete in the 68th Annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, taking place April 13-16 in Portsmouth, Va. (Churchland HS).
The Portsmouth Invitational is the oldest amateur basketball tournament in the United States and the only postseason camp for college basketball seniors. The Portsmouth Invitational is the first of two NBA pre-draft camps.
Notae and Umude helped Arkansas win 28 games and reached the program’s second straight NCAA Elite 8.
Notae, an All-American, averaged 18.3 points — to rank second in the SEC — while leading the league and ranking 14th nationally in steals (2.25 average). He averaged a team-best 17.5 points in regional rounds, including 21 points against Gonzaga and 14 against Duke to make the NCAA West Regional All-Tournament team. Notae scored 1,070 points in two seasons with Arkansas and 1,999 for his career.
Umude averaged 11.9 points and 4.6 rebounds to earn an invite to NABC Reese’s All-Star Game in the Final Four. Thanks to being ninth in the NCAA in points last season (21.6 points per game at South Dakota State), Umude ends his college career with 1,960 points and is one of 18 active players from NCAA Division I to have at least 1,500 points and 600 rebounds, ending with 720 boards.
