Kent State’s Hall to play in front of NBA scouts

NBA draft prospect Jimmy Hall averaged a double-double during his senior season at Kent State.

Kent State forward Jimmy Hall will be among the 64 prospects attempting to impress NBA general managers and scouts at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament this week in Virginia.

Hall is 6-foot-8 and plays an old-school and efficient style, mostly with his back to the basket. He relied on a heavy dose of strong footwork, nifty low-post scoring and tons of determination in leading the Golden Flashes to the NCAA tournament.

Despite an admirable showing from Hall and his teammates, Kent lost in the first round to UCLA.

Hall was named first-team All-Mid-American Conference. He averaged a team-best 19.0 points and 10.6 rebounds this past season.

The Portsmouth Invitational consists of all seniors and is a four-day, 12-game tournament that runs from Wednesday through Saturday.

Some of the more notable names expected to attend include Kentucky’s Derek Willis, Iowa State’s Deonte Burton, Washington State’s Josh Hawkinson, and Lehigh’s Tim Kempton.
