PORTSMOUTH -- Although his team lost in the Portsmouth Invitational title game Saturday, BYU senior Travis Hansen completed a solid three-day performance with a game-high 21 points and was named to the Portsmouth Invitational All-Tournament Team. Hansen was also singled out as the recipient of the event's Sportsmanship Award.

An invitation-only camp, the Portsmouth Invitational showcased 64 of the nation's top seniors in a three-day tournament witnessed by NBA scouts and executives.

Hansen averaged 15.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in his three games at the Portsmouth Invitational. He shot 57.6 percent (19-33) from the floor, including 62.5 percent from NBA three-point range (5-8), and made 80 percent (4-5) of his free throws. He led the team in scoring in two games and had the top assist effort once.

In Saturday's championship contest, Hansen, a consensus All-MWC First Team guard, scored 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including a 3-for-5 performance from behind the NBA three-point arc. He also contributed three rebounds.

Hansen's team, Norfolk Navel Shipyard, lost 95-80 in the title game to Sales Systems Ltd. Kent Williams of Southern Illinois led Sales Systems with 17 points, while San Diego center Jason Keep and North Dakota forward Jerome Beasley each contributed double-doubles. Keep scored 14 points with a game-high 11 rebounds while Beasley, the NCAA Division II Player of the Year and Portsmouth Invitational MVP, tallied 15 points and 10 boards. San Diego State guard Tony Bland added 14 points along with Dayton guard Brooks Hall.

In addition to Hansen's 21-point effort, Navel Shipyard got a 20-point performance on 9-of-12 shooting from LSU's All-SEC forward Ronald Dupree.

In Friday's 97-83 semifinal win over Portsmouth Sports Club, Hansen had nine points, seven rebounds, three assists and one block. Hansen opened the tournament Thursday by scoring a team-high 17 points on 7-for-9 shooting, hitting his only three-point attempt, while going 2-for-2 from the line. He shared game-high honors with six assists and added five rebounds in a 92-83 victory over Beach Barton Ford.
