He'll complete his undergraduate studies at Western Michigan, but Connar Tava will transfer and play as a graduate student at Boston College. He is eligible to play for the Eagles immediately.
A foot injury sidelined the 6-foot-6 forward in what was expected to be an exciting senior year. An All-MAC Honorable Mention player in both his sophomore and junior seasons, Tava was coming off of a season where he led the team in rebounds (6.2 per game), field goal percentage (52 percent) and assists (113), also posting 12.3 points per game. We even tabbed him as our fifth-ranked player in the MAC before the season began. (Note, we made up our list way before the injury was made public in late October, which became an awkward moment for us to write that piece, but I digress.)
Tava announced that he had plans to transfer from the program ten days ago, with goals to obtain a Master's degree.
