NORMAL, Ill. – Illinois State head coach Tim Jankovich added an explosive scorer to his backcourt Wednesday with the announcement that 6-foot-5 guard Chamberlain Oguchi will transfer to ISU from Oregon. Oguchi was a fixture in the Ducks lineup the past three years, and helped them reach the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament last season. He will sit out this year due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have one season of eligibility with the Redbirds beginning in the 2008-09 campaign.
