Oklahoma guard/forward Cameron Clark and Oklahoma State guard Markel Brown were each listed as invites to the 2014 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, but neither will participate this week.

The four-game, 12-day tournament in Portsmouth, Va., typically serves as a showcase for the top 64 senior draft prospects, with representatives from every NBA team in attendance.

Brown took to Twitter on Monday to clarify his non-participation in the Wednesday-Saturday event, saying “Misunderstanding…I will not be attending the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament…sorry.”

Clark (6-foot-7, 211 pounds) was second in scoring for OU with 15.6 points per game, and added 5.5 rebounds and 43 percent shooting from 3-point range as a senior. Brown averaged 17.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per contest for the Cowboys.
