Iowa: Guard Whitney Jennings and forward Tagyn Larson leave program

University of Iowa guard Whitney Jennings (9.6 ppg, 3.1 rpg) and forward Tagyn Larson have decided to leave the women’s basketball program to pursue playing opportunities closer to home. Jennings has two years of eligibility remaining, while Larson has three.

“We appreciate the contributions Whitney and Tagyn made on and off the court in their Hawkeye careers,” UI head coach Lisa Bluder said. “We wish them nothing but the best as they pursue opportunities closer to home.”

Jennings (Logansport, Indiana) played in all 67 games of her career with 62 starts. She recorded 626 points, 191 assists, 169 rebounds, and 77 steals in two seasons.

“I want to thank coach Bluder and Iowa women’s basketball for the tremendous opportunity, but have decided to continue my academic and basketball career at a place closer to home,” Jennings said.

Larson (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) appeared in five games for the Hawkeyes as a freshman.

“I’ve appreciated what the coaches have done for me and the opportunities that have been given to me at Iowa,” Larson said. “I’ve made lifelong friends in my teammates and it’s been an experience I’m going to treasure forever. Looking ahead, I’m excited to start at a new school and have the best years I can there.”
