206 Clicks: The Amazing Story of Whitman's David Michaels

The Portsmouth Invitational is underway in Virginia. This four day tournament showcases the 64 best senior college basketball players in the nation. Washington's Will Conroy, Bobby Jones and Jon Brockman have all participated in the tournament with all of them landing on an NBA roster at one point in their post-Husky careers.

This year, there are no Huskies participating, but David Michaels, a Division III standout from Whitman College in Walla Walla received an invitation to play in the tournament.

Michaels joins elite company as only five other players from the Division III level have ever been invited in the tournament's 60-year existence. What's even more amazing about Michaels' story is that he averaged under ten points a game in his junior season before having a breakout senior season.

Brian Elsner from Wait For It Seattle has the full story.
