Evan Boudreaux to sit out 2017-18 season, departs from Dartmouth basketball

Evan Boudreaux dropped a bombshell Friday, announcing via Twitter that he is sitting out the 2017-18 season to graduate a year early from Dartmouth with two years of eligibility left:

The move is a huge blow to Dartmouth, as Boudreaux as a sophomore last year ranked second in the Ivy League in scoring, first in rebounding and second in minutes played.

Boudreaux’s announcement came a day before Dartmouth’s season-opening 78-77 loss at Quinnipiac, and two years after former Dartmouth standout Alex Mitola opted to become a graduate transfer rather than play his final season in Hanover, eventually choosing George Washington.

Miles Wright, Brendan Barry, Guilien Smith and Taylor Johnson will be tasked with picking up the slack for the Big Green in 2017-18.

  1. Must have been a difficult “family discussion”. His mother was a terrific athlete for the Big Green and is now a member of the Board of Trustees. If I recall correctly, Dartmouth was the only Ivy team to take a halftime lead vs. the Tigers last season, mostly due to Boudreaux”s dominance on the boards. It took a career high scoring night from Weisz to pull it out. Very tough slog for Big Green after losing this production on the season’s eve.
