After leading Bowling Green to its first 20-plus win season in 15 years, Richaun Holmes headed to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in Portsmouth, VA.

His explosiveness, timing as a shot blocker and high basketball IQ were on full display against 64 of the nation’s top seniors. For Holmes, the PIT proved to be a step toward eventually being selected 37th overall by the 76ers in the 2015 NBA Draft.
