  • Back from ACL injury, Warriors two-way player Chris Boucher shows promise

    CHICAGO - One of the few constants in Chris Boucher's life is that at some point, probably at the worst possible moment, a major setback will test his resolve. At age 25, he approaches everything - the good, the bad, the awful - with the skepticism of someone decades older. In March, when he learned he had a torn ACL, Boucher - then a senior forward at Oregon - took the news in stride that he'd spend the NCAA Tournament and the run-up to the NBA draft rehabbing. ...

  • Stanford’s Carrington inherited football toughness

    Earlier this season, DiJonai Carrington received a concussion when she took an accidental elbow near her eye in practice. She missed three Stanford games. The surprise was that Carrington was the receiver of the blow rather that giver. The 5-foot-11 sophomore guard is known for her toughness, competitiveness and athleticism, as befits the daughter of a former NFL player. She took part in Pop Warner football herself from ages 8 to 11, playing...
