At Gonzaga he was named co-West Coast Conference Player of the Year his senior season.[2] Raivio was named West Coast Conference Co-Player of the Year as a senior, sharing the honor with Sean Denison of Santa Clara. He finished his collegiate career as the second all-time career free throw shooting percentage leader in NCAA Division I history (.927).

In 2007, Raivio signed with the Basketball Bundesliga's TBB Trier. In 2010, he signed with the Erie Bayhawks of the NBA D-League. He has since been acquired by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.


Among his teammates, Raivio was friends with skilled chef and idolized celebrity chef Bobby Flay. His brother Nik also plays in the NBA D-League for the New Mexico Thunderbirds and, like Derek, wears #17. His father Rick Raivio played basketball for the University of Portland - where Nik also played - and is a member of that school's Hall of Fame.[4]
