Arizona fans will always hold a place in their hearts for Kyle Fogg, and although he has played his final game as an Arizona Wildcat at McKale Center, the senior guard is looking to continue his basketball career as a professional. He may not be projected to be drafted at the 2012 NBA Draft, but there is still plenty of time for Fogg to improve his stock at various events and workouts.
On Friday, he was officially invited to the Portsmouth Invitational. The event includes 64 of the nation's best seniors, and there are always plenty of NBA scouts in attendance to evaluate the players.
Fogg has always been an underdog of sorts. He was not highly regarded coming out of high school and did not join the Wildcats until long into the summer months. Most figured he was headed to a small California school; he turned out to rank in the top-five in school history for starts made at the University of Arizona. That's some pretty elite company.
As a senior, Fogg averaged 13.5 points, 3.7 assists and 2.4 assists. He was a team captain the last two seasons, and was named to the All-Conference Defensive Team the last two years.
It is now up to him to do his very best to impress scouts at the Portsmouth Invitational. It will give him a chance to separate himself from the rest of the competition, and may be the difference between playing with an NBA or European team next season.
