Taz Sherman to Participate in Portsmouth Invitational Tournament



On Thursday afternoon, West Virginia guard Taz Sherman was invited to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. Sherman will head to Portsmouth, VA, from April 13-16 to play in front of NBA scouts.

The PIT will be hosting their first tournament since 2019, due to the pandemic limiting their availability in 2020 and 2021. Sherman and a slew of other collegiate players will be drafted onto teams to compete in a tournament style bracket that lasts through four days. The PIT considers players from Division I, II, III and JUCO level as well. The point of the tournament is to highlight collegiate players and connect them with NBA scouts.

Sherman spent three years at West Virginia after transferring from Collin College, a JUCO in Texas. Sherman raised his point per game average over his three seasons averaging 5.3 points his junior year, 13.6 points his senior year and 17.7 in his fifth-year. The 6-foot-4 guard shot 40 percent from the field in his career. Sherman became the 55th Mountaineer in program history to record 1,000-career points back in February.
