Iowa's Thomas to transfer

Iowa says that reserve guard Kathy Thomas is transferring.

Hawkeyes coach Lisa Bluder announced Wednesday that Thomas has been released from her scholarship after two seasons.

Thomas, a 5-foot-6 native of Flint, Mich., averaged just 1.6 points in 32 games off the bench in 2012-13.

Bluder says Thomas wants to play closer to home.
