DUKE’S IRVING WANTS TO GO PRO AFTER JUST ONE NCAA SEASON
Thu, 07 Apr 2011 05:17 PM EDT

Freshman and point guard Kyrie Irving is leaving Duke after just :o ne season to enter the NBA draft.

“Our whole program is overjoyed with having Kyrie here for one year and that he has the chance now to pursue a dream of being a high draft pick and a great player in the NBA,” Coach Mike Krzyzewski declared. “We are totally supportive of Kyrie, his family and his decision. We look forward to continuing to work with him during the upcoming months leading to his entry into the NBA and afterwards while he is an NBA player.” Odds.

Irving took part in less than a dozen games and missed more or less two-thirds of the season with a wounded big toe on his right foot. The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 17.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists for top-seeded Duke, which was upset by Arizona in the West regional semifinals. Scores.

When Irving was not injured, he was just thrilling. His 31-point showdown versus Michigan State marked just the fourth time in school history that a freshman scored 30 points in a game. He was the MVP of the CBE Classic after averaging 14.5 points and six assists.

“It was a great experience playing for Coach K,” Irving said. “He taught me a lot about the game. Even when I was hurt, I learned a lot. Also a special thanks goes to the medical staff for getting me back on the court for the NCAA Tournament and my teammates for sticking with me throughout the entire year. Duke offered me an experience I could never have imagined.” Irving’s words after deciding to opt for a career in the NBA.

Irving’s early exit leaves another gap in Duke’s lineup that will be missing graduated seniors Nolan Smith , the ACC’s player of the year, and Kyle Singler, the most outstanding player at last year’s Final Four. Among the Blue Devils’ incoming freshmen is guard Austin Rivers, the son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Las Vegas odds.
