Often it's hard for inside players to stand out in predraft games, with guards controlling much of the action, but Arizona forward Ryan Anderson made a name for himself anyway.

Anderson led his "Roger Brown's Restaurant" team to the title of the seniors-only Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, and made the 12-player all-tournament team.

Anderson was the event's leading rebounder (12.0) and third-leading scorer (18.0) over his three games. He struggled from the field in the championship game, going 2 for 13, but made up for it partially at the line by making 7 of 8 free throws. He had 11 points and 15 rebounds in that game.

Gabe York, meanwhile, averaged 10.0 points and shot an average of 36.8 percent from three-point territory. He had 11 assists to nine turnovers.

The final stats are attached to the right.

OT, but ICYMI Michael Lev had a good story on former UA football player Dave Wood's courageous battle with a rare cancer.
