Austin carries himself with class and sportsmanship and his behavior while he was at Duke has been nothing but a credit to the University.
On the court in his one season at Duke, he was fearless, driven, and, in several games, gave us much needed buckets at critical moments. I'm sorry to see him leaving after one season, because you could see the growth in his game, and I have little doubt he would have been one of the best players in the ACC next season.
The Shot was definitely one of the best single moments of the season, probably the best. Austin wanted to make his mark on the Duke-UNC rivalry, and he sure got that job done.
Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."
