Redick, College Hoops drive to PS3

Former Duke sharpshooter is new spokesperson for 2K Sports' collegiate hoopster; game headed to PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, Xbox.

Chances are, anyone who has watched college basketball over the last four years has heard the phrase, "Redick for three!" The Redick in question is of course J.J., the Duke Blue Devils superstar who has won numerous awards, including multiple player of the year trophies.

Add one more honor to the long list of Redick's accolades--cover athlete for 2K Sports' College Hoops 2K7. Redick, who was drafted by the Orlando Magic in the off-season, will also serve as the game's spokesperson, temporarily putting to rest that his marketability was tarnished by a DUI charge in June.

A statement from 2K Sports today also revealed that the game, previously announced only for the Xbox 360, is headed to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and Xbox this fall. The fall release makes it a likely candidate for a launch title on the PS3, which hits US stores on November 17.

Redick, though one of the best players in college basketball history, was often the focus of hatred from fans as the best player for high-profile (and much maligned) Duke University. One of Redick's best friends and main competition last year for player of the year honors, former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison, remains his rival on the digital court, as he is now doing promotional work for Electronic Arts' NBA Live 07.

The reason Reddick is on is because he was player of the year runner up (i think to morrison) They wouldn't put the national champ on it because Florida won it and they are returning all their starters. JJ is also a high profile college player from the year before from one of the best programs in college basketball.

the ncaa makes hundreds of millions of dollars from the work of these kids and then when they are no longer useful they get discarded like old trash.

I still don't like how they put athletes on the cover of college games who are no longer in college. But that's not the big news here. PS2, Xbox and PS3 versions of College Hoops 2K7 are on the way! Sounds promising.
