Dickerson Leaves Hawkeye Basketball


University of Iowa head men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery announced Monday that Trey Dickerson has decided to transfer and has been granted a full release from his scholarship.

“We appreciate the contributions Trey made during his time here,” said McCaffery. “Trey has a bright future, and we wish him all the best moving forward.”

Dickerson, who intends on finishing this semester academically before transferring, came to Iowa after one season of junior college basketball at Williston State in North Dakota. The 6-foot point guard averaged 2.7 points, 1.2 assists, and 0.5 rebounds in 15 games this season as a sophomore with the Hawkeyes.

“I appreciate the staff and Hawkeye nation for showing me love,” Dickerson said. “I enjoyed my time here by I have to do what’s best for me.”

Iowa (17-10, 8-6) returns to action Wednesday when it hosts Illinois (17-10, 7-7). Tipoff is set for 8:06 p.m. (CT) on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
