Rivers playing at Portsmouth Invitational

A source confirmed a report by Yahoo.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski that graduating Indiana guard Jeremiah Rivers has been added as a late addition for the Portsmouth Invitational, which begins Wednesday.

The Portsmouth Invitational is an annual tournament held at Churchland H.S. in Portsmouth, Va., that invites 64 top college seniors to play in a tournament watched by scouts from the NBA, NBA Development League and European Leagues. Other Big Ten invitees include Penn State’s Talor Battle, Illinois’ Mike Davis, Ohio State’s Jon Diebler, Minnesota’s Blake Hoffarber, and Michigan State’s Durrell Summers. Rivers, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, averaged 3.8 points and 3.0 rebounds this season, but is considered the Hoosiers’ best defender.


  1. Jeremiah can defend and he has at times, unrestrained athleticism that may land him on a roster somewhere next season. I wish Jeremiah well and thanks for playing ball at IU and becoming a Hoosier!

  2. I agree with you about Rivers. I think he might end up on an NBADL roster, mostly because of his father. People don’t realize what a sacrifice transferring is. Sitting out an entire year of College BB. I also thank JR for becoming a Hoosier in our darkest hour. Here is to hoping we come up with some Butler type runs soon…with a little different ending.
