Big East Most Improved Player Desmond Claude entered the transfer portal after averaging 16.6 points at Xavier as a sophomore last season.

Claude, a Connecticut product, played in 69 games in two seasons at Xavier and the 6-6 swingman made a huge jump from his 4.7-point scoring average as a freshman.

Claude, who made only 23.9 percent of his 3-point tries last season, scored 30 points in his final game for the Musketeers at Georgia in an opening-round loss in the NIT.

He led the Big East in scoring during March with 22.8 points per game.

In addition to increased scoring, Claude played 33.8 minutes per game and averaged 4.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists last season.
