The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament showcases some of the top recent graduates in front of a crowd of NBA scouts and Justin Tillman is wasting no time in capitalizing on his invite.
The 2018 Ram graduate has notched back-to-back double-doubles against a loaded tourney field, kicking his week off with a 10-point, 15-rebound performance in just 26 minutes of action, then following that up with 25-point, 11-rebound performance on 12-18 shooting on Thursday afternoon.
