Austin Rivers has a decision to make pretty soon. The Winter Park (Fla.) High School star about as good as his father Doc when it comes to building the suspense. His top choices are Florida, Duke and North Carolina in no particular order. He hasn't taken any official visits yet and doesn't plan to until the start of the school year.

In the meantime, he's still toasting teams whenever he steps on the floor. He dropped 24 point for his Each 1 Teach 1 AAU team in the Super Showcase championship game down in Orlando.

You can check the highlights above, and Buddy Collings has the story for the Orlando Sentinel.

Rivers scored a game-high 24 points and an E1T1 supporting cast including two of his high school teammates, Adam Jones and Brett Comer, came through in a 78-60 victory over the St. Louis Eagles.

Trevor Lacey, a highly recruited rising senior from Alabama who plays the wing opposite Rivers, pumped in 22 in a national TV game that filled most of the available seats at Disney's Milk House and had college coaches stacked at both ends.

"Everyone around the country knows Austin is the man and he's the first option," said Lacey, also a high-major prospect. "I got some easy shots and that helped me get going."
