SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Star big man Chris Boucher carefully stood with his bulky knee brace to pump his arms and cheer his teammates at every chance. He shimmied his shoulders in delight to celebrate the Oregon Ducks and what they were doing on the big stage without him.
Not quite the shot-blocking menace on the sidelines that he is on the floor for Oregon. He's doing his part.
The Ducks advanced in the NCAA Tournament in large part because each player committed to do all the little things that Boucher brings on both ends.
