The men’s basketball hits just keep coming for Boston College this week. The program has fired Jim Christian, suspended guard Wynston Tabbs for violating COVID policies, and postponed another pair of games due to COVID protocol, all within the past few days. Now, ESPN is reporting that Tabbs has entered the transfer portal.
It isn’t a big surprise to see players transferring when a coaching change is announced, and it is particularly unsurprising that Tabbs is going to be the first to go considering he’s gotten in trouble with BC administration.
Tabbs is a junior, but has 2 years of eligibility remaining because he missed last season with an injury. He also missed half of his freshman season with injury. However, as a freshman Tabbs became the first BC rookie took score 15+ points in his first 3 games and he scored in the double digits in 11 of the 15 games he appeared in.
This season, Tabbs averaged 13.3 points per game and 2.7 rebounds a game. He leads the team in 3 point percentage (out of players who have appeared in the majority of BC’s games), shooting 39.7% from behind the arc. His 13.3 points per game are second on the roster (behind Jay Heath).
We wish Tabbs the best of luck wherever he lands!
