Video: Austin Rivers at Duke’s Midnight Madness

Is he the nation’s best freshman?

Duke freshman Austin Rivers is a helluva of a player who lacks no confidence. As footage from this week’s Midnight Madness can attest, the young superstar is primed to take over Cameron Indoor Stadium.

    Of course he’s crossing up Seth Curry, just like Jennings did to his older brother..

    He has a nice quick fluid release. Can’t wait to watch them play.

    No! Andre Drummond is gonna have a WAY bigger impact then him

  • t-sizzle

    wow.. his shot is so ugly, reminds me of miller… and he doesn’t seem to have THAT much bounce..

  • T-Money

    rivers reminds me of jj redick – which bodes well for his ncaa career but not so well for nba stardom. he would really benefit from learning to play the point because he’s kinda smallish for the 2 and doesn’t have crazy bounce. his pull up is nice but it’ll be harder to get off vs. guys like sefolosha. as i’m not sure he’ll be able to go to the hole at the nba level i think he’ll just be another spot up shooter.

    he’s starting to get over confident…someone needs to bring him back down to earth

    Dukies will love him until he declares for the draft, then they’ll hate him like they now hate Kyrie Irving.

    tony wroten jr. at washington is better than this kid. i know i’ll get some stats thrown at me and all types of people hyping up rivers, but i bet this kid will get housed in the acc while wroten flirts with a triple double out west.

    I’d take Kidd-Gilchrist over Rivers at the next level.

    Chucker. Gonna drive coach crazy and will be told “you did all you can do here, go pro” after one year.

    Tony Wroten is nice.
    Too bad he’ll be slept on cause he plays in the Pac….12?
    I can’t keep up.

  • DieselMechanic
