Chandler announced her intention to transfer on May 9, writing on Instagram: “I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Cuse for an unforgettable great two years! I want to thank the city of Syracuse, the fans of Cuse women's basketball, to thank all of my coaches, all the staff, and the University for allowing me to be a part of The Orange Nation. Special thanks to my teammates, you guys are something special! Now it's time for me to start the next chapter of my life. I’ll be transferring to another program at the end of this academic year. I am truly appreciative of the experience and the people here at Syracuse.”
