Tennessee State forward Robert Covington was named to the Portsmouth Invitational All-Tournament Team for his play in his squad’s three games.
Covington was fourth in the tournament in scoring, averaging 17.7 points per game. He also recorded 8.7 rebounds and 2.3 steals per contest.
Covington joins 11 other players on the team including Ian Clark of Belmont, Ed Daniel of Murray State and tournament MVP Brandon Davies of BYU.

Each year for 60 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, twelve game tournament in front of representatives from every NBA team.
Covington and the rest of the P.I.T participants will wait for their names to be called in the NBA Draft, held on June 27.
