Former STAB Basketball Star Javin DeLaurier Ready for Senior Season at Duke
CHARLOTTE, N.C, (WVIR) - Former Saint Anne's-Belfield basketball star Javin DeLaurier is entering his senior season at Duke.
DeLaurier is one of just three seniors on the Blue Devils' roster.
As an elder statesman, and team captain, he was representing Duke at ACC Media Days in Charlotte, NC.
DeLaurier is serving as a team captain for the second year in a row.
Duke has made the Elite Eight in each of the last two years, and DeLaurier is looking to take the next step in his final season of college basketball.
"It's crazy, time has flown by," says DeLaurier. "I'm really trying to come out and show consistency for my team, and always be a contributor, and win a national championship. It's my last shot, so hopefully it all works out."
DeLaurier averaged 3.8 points per game in 2018-19, but he expects to have a bigger role in the offense this season.
"It's something that, the coaches have given me a lot of confidence in, letting me know, that if I'm open, I have the green light to shoot," says DeLaurier. "That's been a big step in my progression. I wouldn't change my journey for the world. Everyone runs their own race. It got off to a slow start, for sure, but I couldn't be more thankful that I ended up at Duke University."
Javin DeLaurier Shot a career-best .747 from the field (59-of-79) last season, and he is a career .706 shooter from the floor.
