Payne leaving the Hawkeyes


Cully Payne is leaving the Iowa Hawkeye basketball program.

Matt Weitzel, assistant sports information director, says Payne asked for a release from his scholarship and it was granted.

Payne, from Schaumburg, Illinois, started all 32 games as a freshman in 2009-10, but missed all but the first five games last year after having hernia surgery.

There is no word on Payne's future plans.
