Travis Steele updates KyKy Tandy’s status

Xavier Musketeers guard KyKy Tandy (24) dribbles just inside the 3-point line in the first half of an NCAA men's college basketball game against the Butler Bulldogs, Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021, at Cintas Center in Cincinnati.

One of the biggest questions to emerge for Xavier University's men's basketball team over the last couple of months is the status of sophomore guard KyKy Tandy. 

An all-freshman selection in the Big East Conference last season, Tandy has seen his playing time drastically decrease since the start of conference play. He's averaging just under eight minutes per game in Big East action, and he didn't play at all against Providence or UConn, leaving many to wonder where he stands this season and going forward. 

Head coach Travis Steele addressed this on his radio show Monday night, the day after a 63-51 win over Butler in which Tandy scored five points in seven minutes, but did not play in the second half.

"Number one, he had a really good week of practice. That's what got him on the floor and I thought he had three really good days. He didn't win the (practice) gold jersey but he was up near the top for the first time all year," said Steele. "So we're going to reward those guys that are there. I told him, I said, 'Hey, be ready to play, you're going to play.'
