Austin Rivers cancels visit to Carolina, signs with Duke

In another blow to UNC athletics, No. 1 rated high school basketball star Austin Rivers not only canceled a planned official to UNC for this weekend but has committed to Duke.

"He picked Duke because of [Mike Krzyzewski] and his staff," his high school coach David Bailey said today. "There is a ton of tradition at Duke, and it was the best place for him from a basketball and academic standpoint."

I guess Carolina and Roy Williams are chopped liver and not even deserving of a visit. Take that Tar Heels.

Rivers' father, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, said that Austin's commitment to Duke has not been finalized but is likely.
