Per reports on social media, Rich Kelly is out for the remainder of the men’s basketball season and will be entering the transfer portal. In the past couple of weeks BC has fired Jim Christian, suspended Wynston Tabbs, had Tabbs enter the transfer portal, and had to reschedule 2 games due to COVID protocols. Truly just cancel the season now!
Kelly is a transfer guard from Quinnipiac who joined BC this season. He is currently third of the team in points per game with an 11.0 average and he leads the team with 31 assists. He had a season high 27 points against Miami early in January, which is BC’s lone ACC win so far this season.
Without Tabbs and Kelly, the Eagles have now lost 2 of their top 3 scorers for whatever remaining games they do end up playing this season. Transfers are to be expected with any coaching change, but it certainly isn’t ideal that this already struggling team will be without Kelly and Tabbs for the rest of the season.
