Oregon big man Chris Boucher will be back with the Ducks next season, the program announced today.
Boucher, who transferred into the program from a junior college, was originally supposed to have two years of eligibility with the Ducks (this is his first year). The NCAA ruled back in November, though, that he'd only have one season because of when his "NCAA eligibility clock started."
The 6-foot-10 forward filed a petition with the NCAA to get another year and Oregon announced today that it's been approved.
