Hayden Dalton Gets a Chance to Play in Senior Showcase
Former Wyoming forward Hayden Dalton is getting an opportunity to display his skill in front of professional scouts at the Portsmouth Invitational this week.
This event features 64 of the top senior college basketball players in the country gathering for four days of competition in Portsmouth, VA Wednesday through Saturday. They are divided into eight teams that will play a tournament style format with NBA and international scouts in attendance. The top players will receive an invite to the NBA combine May 16-20 in Chicago.
“I’m looking forward to going out there and showing everybody what I can do,” said Dalton in a release from the University of Wyoming. “It’s an amazing opportunity to showcase your talents and prepare yourself for the next step in your career.”
Dalton played in the Reese’s College All-Star game March 30 in San Antonio prior to the Final Four. He scored four points and grabbed six rebounds for the victorious West All-Stars.
The Portsmouth Invitational is the oldest amateur basketball tournament in the nation and is only event dedicated to college seniors. It’s in its 66th year. The most recent Cowboy to participate at this event was Josh Adams in 2016.
