This marks the first time that the Raiders have retired a boys basketball number. During his halftime address, Dougher recalled his high school career. “I couldn’t have played with a better group of guys,” said Dougher. “I’ll remember that state championship run in 2008 as one of the best years of my life.”
Dougher was a four-year varsity player and a two-time captain for the Raiders, scoring 1,635 points in his high school career. He was also the 2008 state championship MVP his senior year, concluding a season in which he averaged 22 points, five assists, and four rebounds per game. He attended Stony Brook University, finishing his college career as the all-time leading scorer with 1,609 points, and as the all-time leader in three-pointers made with 337.
