Farquhar has joined the dark side
Yet another of the five Purdue players to transfer from the women’s basketball program has found her new home as Michigan State announced they have landed Tamara Farquhar as a graduate transfer.

She joins Karissa McLaughlin (Marquette), Fatou Diagne (Houston), and Kayana Traylor (Virginia Tech) as former Boilermakers that have pledged to a new school. This leaves Bria Harmon as the only transfer that has yet to commit after leaving the program.
This one stings for the Boilermakers, losing a leader to the conference rival Spartans. Farquhar will indeed play again her former team next season, but it remains to be seen if it will be in East Lansing, West Lafayette, or both.
Farquhar was a key piece of the 2019-20 team before going down with a torn ACL against Rutgers and started hot this past season averaging 10.1 points and 8.0 rebounds over the first seven games. She then struggled mightily the rest of the season, finishing with a line of 6.5 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest on 37% shooting for the year.
It was a disappointing turn of events for the senior forward and evidently thought East Lansing would hold greener pastures (no pun intended) for her final year of eligibility.
Good luck to Tamara as she starts a new chapter in her career.
