Iowa point guard Trey Dickerson leaves after less than a season

 

Iowa point guard Trey Dickerson is leaving the program after less than a year in Iowa City.

The Hawkeyes announced Monday that Dickerson has been granted a release from his scholarship.

Dickerson, a sophomore, will finish out the year academically before transferring to a new school.

Dickerson, a junior-college transfer, never quite fit in with the Hawkeyes. He struggled to find playing time behind juniors Mike Gesell and Anthony Clemmons and wound up playing only 15 games at Iowa, averaging 2.7 points.

Dickerson’s departure will free up an extra scholarship that Iowa could possibly use in the increasingly important spring signing season.
