Duke Basketball: 5 Reasons Austin Rivers Should Have Given College Another Year

Austin Rivers should really have given college another year.

He had tremendous expectations coming into his freshman year.

During his brief time in Durham, Rivers provided some highlight plays, including hitting a game-winning three over the outstretched hands of Tyler Zeller. 

Rivers provided the energy that fueled the Blue Devil's to 27 wins and only seven losses during last season.

He has decided to leave Duke and enter the NBA draft in June. He is expected to be a first round pick in the draft. He is athletic enough and has a good stoke to be a solid player in the next level right away.

However, if he just stayed at least another year in college, not only would he be a better basketball player, but he would experience more of what college has to offer.
