Austin Rivers, Nick Collison Ejected From Game for Small Scrum

On Monday night, Nick Collison set a strong screen on Austin Rivers, and Rivers wasn’t happy. As a result, on the other end of the floor, the former Duke one-and-done attempted to tackle Collison, though he failed to do so. Collison didn’t really do anything wrong, as Rivers instigated the scrum, but generally in these situations both players are ejected. Maybe Rivers was just...

YEA I AM   K.M.’s Take: A solid athlete with good size for a SG, Rivers was a good college player who performed on the ACC stage. That statement used to mean a lot more then it does today. Rivers is a player that fancies himself as able to get buckets, and is not afraid to take any shot, no matter the situation. Skip Bayless enjoys his clutch gene or whatever the hell Skip Bayless...

Scouting Report - Austin Rivers

Similar to Draft Classmate Harrison Barnes, Austin Rivers came into college on the verge of being overhyped, and as often happens in situations like that, lack of production tends to bring out a lot of negativity.  In the 2nd half of this past season, Duke mixed up their offense more to play to Rivers’ strengths, and better results often came along with it.  He plays well in...

So Austin Rivers is Still a Blue Devil, Well Maybe

Decisions are hard but even harder when it seems someone else is making the decisions for you.  CBS Sports reported earlier today that Duke freshman Austin Rivers had decided to forgo his remaining eligibility, sign with an agent and enter the NBA Draft.  Since that report, Duke and family members of Rivers have apparently said those reports are all premature and that no decision...

Fans Tweet the Darndest Things About Austin Rivers

Duke Guard Austin Rivers is very good. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone considering he was the number one rated Freshman coming into this year. Expectations for him are high and last night he lived up to those expectations as he scored 29 points (which is the most ever by a Freshman against North Carolina) including 6 from behind the arc and nailed the game winning three...
