2021 Big East Transfer Portal, Vol. 3

6’2 KyKy Tandy has withdrawn from the transfer portal and will be returning to Xavier for the 2021/2022 season. The total number of players who have left the Big East this offseason now sits at thirty-two.

After a promising freshman campaign in 2019/2020, Tandy saw his role decrease for the Musketeers in the latter half of this past season; Tandy played less than ten minutes on seven occasions during 2020/2021 and did not see the court for Xavier’s first round loss to Butler in the Big East Tournament.

It came as no surprise that Tandy announced his decision to transfer considering the circumstances surrounding his role, which is what makes his return strange given Xavier’s backcourt pieces will remain mostly the same heading into 2021/2022. However, regardless of how outsiders view this move, I’d bet all the money in my mattress that the Xavier faithful are thrilled to have Tandy back in the fold.
