Rivers Transferring to Indiana
As reported by the Indianapolis Star, former Georgetown guard Jeremiah Rivers has announced that he will transfer to Indiana. The 6-4 sophomore chose the Hoosiers over Georgia Tech and Central Florida. He is confident that he will be able to contribute in a variety of ways once he becomes eligible to play at IU. "I'm the kind of player who can get the ball in the paint, distribute it to my teammates, and finish around the basket," Rivers said. "I have a good mid-range jump shot, too. I think I can be a good point guard at Indiana, but at the same time I can bring some shooting guard skills to the table as well." Rivers was widely recognized as one of the best defenders in the Big East when he played for the Hoyas, and also averaged 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game.
