By Chris Williams, Publisher

Two more Iowa State men’s basketball players are on their way out.

Iowa State announced today that LaRon Dendy and Antwon Oliver will not be with the program next season.

“LaRon and I met yesterday and he informed me of his intentions to transfer to another school,” Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said in the release. “He explained to me this was something he has been considering for quite some time. We will do everything we can to help LaRon in his future goals.”

Oliver red-shirted last year for Iowa State.
