Tonight marks the biggest game of the season thus far for the Duke Blue Devils, and freshman guard Austin Rivers couldn't be more excited for his first true road game of his career. Earlier in the week, Rivers spoke with the media about the game, and how he and his team have progressed to this point.
BEST OF MAXIM
Duke’s super freshman point guard, Austin Rivers, crosses over Ohio St.’s Jordan Sibert, sinks the finger roll, and draws the blocking foul on Jared Sullinger.

The one highlight for Duke during their embarrassing loss to Ohio State on Tuesday night may have been Austin Powers crossing up Jordan Sibert. The highly touted 19-year-old Duke player has shown signs of brilliance in his first college season, and this ankle breaker would be one of those.

Yes, Duke got beat by 9,573 points last night. But at least Doc’s son Austin Rivers dropped 22 points and this highlight crossover.
Duke freshman Austin Rivers says the team grew up in Maui
College basketball recruiting junkies will remember that almost two years ago, Florida received a verbal commitment from Brad Beal, a shooting guard from Chaminade (MO). At that time, the Gators also held a verbal commitment from lauded Winter Park (FL) guard Austin Rivers, who eventually broke his pledge and ended up at Duke. Had both [...]

I am a diehard Dukie. Have been since I was a little kid.
I have seen some talented players come through the ranks; from Jay Williams to Shane Battier to Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer.
Is Doc Rivers’ kid Austin the next big thing?
He may be.

He’s a little thin, but I watched him last night and his crossover is NASTY. He was breaking...
"SUCK MY DICK, GOD!"
I’m not even going to bother writing up anything creative and ******** today. What’s the point when there are going to be 20+ comments before noon regarding “Duke Sux”, ******* Duke”, and “Is Austin Rivers black?”. So we’re running lean and mean on this Wednesday so that you can spew out whatever you want to in the comments without offending...
Somehow Duke became the Washington Generals and Ohio State morphed into the Harlem Globetrotters. We all know how that game ends every single time.
Duke looked shell shocked just a few minutes into their Top 5 showdown with No. 2 Ohio State. By halftime the game was well in hand with Ohio State up by 19 and from there it just got worse in the second half. In the end the final...
Ohio State had little trouble with Duke in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, smashing the Devils 85-63. Aaron Craft, Austin Rivers and Deshaun Thomas all earned high praise from Seth Davis.
Austin Rivers, Mason Plumlee, Seth Curry, Andre Dawkins and Ryan Kelly are amongst the top prospects for Duke, while Ohio State features Jared Sullinger, William Buford, Aaron Craft, Deshaun Thomas and Shannon Scott.
I expect the guards from Ohio State to put pressure on the Duke guards, and keep them off of the three point arc. Duke will have to take care of the ball and expect sophomore guard Aaron Craft to be in waiting if they do not, Craft averages 3.5 steals per game. Austin Rivers especially will have to be aware and keep the turnovers to a minimum, valuing the ball should be his mantra...
