Representatives from Take-Two publishing label 2K Sports announced that former Duke University Blue Devils star player J.J. Redick will be featured as the cover athlete for College Hoops 2K7, and will act as the game's official spokesman. As one of the most highly decorated players in college basketball history, Redick was key part of Duke’s basketball legacy, becoming the NCAA’s all-time leader in free throw percentage (.922) while also setting several Duke and ACC records-including career points scored (2,769). Redick also earned a number of awards during his time with the team from 2002-2006, including the James Sullivan Award, John R. Wooden Award, Naismith College Player of the Year Award, and Adolph F. Rupp Award (twice) while also being named a consensus All-American in both his junior and senior years. The college basketball star will soon take his talents to the NBA, as he begins his professional basketball career with the Orlando Magic this fall. “It’s an honor to be on the cover of College Hoops 2K7,” said Redick. “I’m a huge video gamer and have always been a fan of the College Hoops 2K series for its authenticity and addictive gameplay. I’m very excited to be a part of 2K7 and from what I’ve seen so far, this game is going to be mind-blowing.” College Hoops 2K7 adds post-season NIT, revamped defensive AI and defensive controls, and expanded broadcast presentation. The game is currently expected to ship this fall for the Xbox 360, Xbox, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 2 .
