NEW YORK — Moments after his team lost to the Knicks, 104-101, at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night, Celtics coach Doc Rivers talked to me about the recruitment of his son, Austin.
The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Rivers is the No. 2 shooting guard in the nation and a junior at Winter Park (Fla.).
After initially committing to Florida, Rivers opted to visit Duke and is now considering North Carolina as well.
“Florida is still the front-runner and Duke, it’s those two. He’s just looking around. I think he wants to really look at other schools to get a bearing on what he likes and I like what he’s doing,” Doc said.
