2015 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament Coverage
-Official Rosters and Preview
-Day Three Recap
-St. Mary's center Brad Waldow was the heaviest player weighed at the PIT, at 287 pounds, followed by Xavier's Matt Stainbrook at 283 pounds. Waldow led the nation in Post Up scoring during the regular season according to Synergy Sports Technology while Stainbrook's high basketball IQ made him a comparably dynamic threat on the block with his ability to both score and find the open man last season.

-Charleston Southern's Saah Nimley was the lightest at 155 pounds, followed by N.C. Central's Nimrod Hilliard at 156.

-The shortest wingspan belonged to Saah Nimley at 5-9, well behind the second shortest, Baylor's Kenny Cherry at 6-1. Those two also had the shortest standing reaches at 7-3 1/2 and 7-9 1/2 respectively.

-St Bonaventure's Youssou Ndoye and Massachusetts's Cady Lalanne, who both posted wingspans of 7-5, tied as the longest players in attendance. Those two also had the longest standing reaches at 9-4 and 9-2 1/2 respectively. Coincidentally, that pair ranked 3rd and 2nd in rebounds per-40 minutes in the A-10 this season.
On top of his terrific measurements, Cady Lalanne has helped himself with a very productive showing at the PIT, playing with much better energy and focus than he displayed in his UMass career. He has terrific length for a center, and even showed some ability to play the power forward position with a developing jump-shot. Even though he weighs 241 pounds, he appears to have a frame that can continue to fill out. There aren't many players in this draft who have a wingspan that is 8.75 inches greater than their height without shoes, so expect Lalanne to get plenty of workouts and stay on the NBA radar screen even if he doesn't hear his name called on draft night.

-Darrun Hilliard measured very well for a wing at 6-5 1/2 without shoes, with a strong 220 pound frame and 8-7 1/2 standing reach.

-Andre Hollins has an impressive wingspan to height ratio, with his arms being 8.25 inches longer than he is tall without shoes.

Darion Atkins was one of the most pleasant surprises of the PIT, being one of the most productive players in attendance despite only getting an invite at the very last minute due to the surprising withdrawal of David Kravish. Atkins only measured at 6-7 without shoes, but has ample length with a 7-2 wingspan and a strong 240-pound frame.

Bowling Green's Richaun Holmes helped himself with a strong week here in Portsmouth as well, and also measured out very well for a power forward. Measuring 6-8 1/2 without shoes at 236 pounds with a 7-1 1/2 wingspan and 9-0 standing reach. Holmes is one of the youngest players in attendance, not turning 22 until October. He's a good athlete with a developing skill-set and is someone that will continue to get looks by NBA teams as he transitions to the professional level.

-Stanford's Stefan Nastic was the tallest player in attendance measuring 6-10.5 without shoes while Nimley was unsurprisingly the smallest at 5-5.75.
