Mark Lyons helped lead K&D Round's Landscaping to an 87-78 win over Roger Brown's Restaurant in the championship game of the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, the seniors-only predraft event.

Lyons put up big numbers in the final Saturday: He had 20 points on 5-for-10 shooting, making 7 of 8 free throws, dished four assists to three turnovers and had a steal.

PGU's Ezra Amacher attended the game, posting this photo and saying on Twitter that Lyons "is playing unselfish basketball, getting his teammates involved on every possession." 

For the three games he played in the PIT, Lyons averaged 14.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.6 turnovers and 2.6 steals.

Things were not so great for Aaron Gordon over at the Jordan Brand Classic. Named the MVP of the McDonalds All-American Game 10 days earlier, Gordon was 1 for 6 and scored just three points with three rebounds and had four turnovers in what is generally considered the second-most prestigious high school all-star game.

Gordon tweeted this after the game:

 

 

Here's one look at what happened at the Jordan game in Brooklyn.

The best (well, only) boxscore I could find of the game was this one. (Let me know if any of you found a better one).

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had a pretty active night. He had seven points on 3-for-5 shooting, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
