The Portsmouth Invitational is annually one of the first major events of the college basketball offseason, and for 64 seniors, it is also one of the most important.

This serves as one last chance for most of them to impress NBA scouts against elite competition.

As the name indicates, the four-day event is held each year in Portsmouth, Va. This year, it’s from April 11-14, and the tournament has finally released its entire list of players.

Jock Landale (Saint Mary’s) and Jaylen Adams (St. Bonaventure) are the two most notable mid-major players, but they’re far from the only ones. The stacked field also includes Peyton Aldridge (Davidson), Johnathan Williams (Gonzaga), Kendrick Nunn (Oakland), Jared Terrell (Rhode Island), Nick King (Middle Tennessee), and more.

If you’re unfamiliar with the tournament, here’s how it works: the 64 seniors are divided into eight teams of eight players. Those eight teams play a tournament with a similar format as a November MTE (like the Maui Invitational). In other words, win or lose, each team is guaranteed to play three games. According to reliable news source Wikipedia.com, about 200 NBA representatives will descend on Churchland High School in Portsmouth to watch.

Here’s the complete player list:
