CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State men’s basketball head coach Wayne Tinkle announced Thursday that Malcolm Duvivier will graduate this spring and has elected to transfer.
“I want to thank my coaches, teammates and all of Beaver Nation for an amazing four years at Oregon State University,” Duvivier said. “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.”
“We wish Malcolm the best of luck as he moves forward in his basketball career,” Tinkle said. “I want to thank him for his commitment to helping us turn this program around. More important, we are thrilled that he’s getting his degree from Oregon State and is healthy enough to continue his playing career. We made it clear that he will always be a member of the Oregon State Beaver family.”
Duvivier, a 6-foot-2 guard from Toronto, Canada, sat out the 2016-17 season for personal reasons. In his first three years at Oregon State, he played in all 95 games, including 62 starts, and averaged 6.6 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists, while shooting 38.9 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from beyond the arc.
His career highs were 19 points against UCLA on Jan. 22, 2015, eight rebounds at California on March 1, 2015, six assists in two games and four steals against DePaul on Dec. 18, 2014.
Duvivier was selected to the Pac-12 All-Academic Second Team in 2016 and named Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention in 2015. He was also selected to the Pac-12 Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) and participated in two Beavers Without Borders trips to the Dominican Republic.
