Zion Griffin announced Tuesday through his Instagram page his plans to leave Iowa State’s men’s basketball team.
The 6-foot-6 sophomore was never able to make an impact with the Cyclones. He battled injury as a freshman, and then as a sophomore averaged 10.7 minutes per game.
The Cyclones went 12-20 this past season, finishing with 20 losses for the first time in 44 years. They’ve finished under .500 and missed the NCAA tournament in two of the last three seasons.
