Boucher gets another year!

Former NWC standout and now Oregon Duck forward Chris Boucher, who has played a crucial role for the Pac-12 regular-season and tournament champion Ducks, is eligible to return to the program for the 2016-17 season after having a waiver request granted by the NCAA. Boucher joined the Ducks this season after leaving the Trappers and was declared a senior due to the circumstances of his high school graduation, which was delayed when he took a year off to work and support his family. On Wednesday, the NCAA determined that the delay owed to circumstances beyond his control, and that Boucher should be granted another year of collegiate eligibility. Boucher had 19 points and 11 rebounds in Oregon’s Pac-12 tournament quarterfinal win over Washington last week, and another 15 points in the final against Utah. He was named to the all-tournament team along with teammates Elgin Cook, Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey. The NCAA ruling means that the 2015-16 season becomes Boucher's junior year. #reboot #news Photo H/T Northwest College Trapper Athletics
