Oregon State guard Malcolm Duvivier to graduate, transfer


Oregon State guard Malcolm Duvivier will become the latest in a long line of graduate transfers this spring. On Thursday afternoon, the program announced that the senior will graduate and finish his collegiate career elsewhere.

“I want to thank my coaches, teammates and all of Beaver Nation for an amazing four years at Oregon State University,” Duvivier said in a statement. “I have grown so much as a person and as a basketball player during my time in Corvallis, but I think it’s best for me if I get a fresh start at a new environment to finish my college career.

“It was a goal of mine to change the culture of Oregon State basketball, and the highlight of my time was being a big contributor to getting the Beavers back to the NCAA Tournament.”

Duvivier missed all of the 2016-17 season, citing personal reasons.

He had his best statistical season as a sophomore, averaging 10.7 points 3.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game, playing a backcourt alongside Gary Payton II. Despite starting all 32 games as a junior, Duvivier’s playing time decreased as a result of a heralded freshman class. He averaged 6.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists a contest in his final playing season in Corvallis.

He will be eligible to play immediately next season.
