Duke freshman Austin Rivers finally got his shot on the big stage last night, proving his talents to the entire nation with a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer to take down the rival North Carolina Tar Heels.

The buzzer-beating three pointer capped a furious rally led by Austin Rivers, who finished with a game-high 29 points in the win. Rivers’ 29 points was also a season high, setting the record for most points scored by a Duke Freshman versus the Tar Heels.
