BLOOMINGTON (WISH) – The Indiana basketball team has lost another player from their roster.

Center Peter Jurkin is transferring in hopes of getting more playing time somewhere else.

IU head coach Tom Crean announced Saturday he was granting his release.

Jurkin has struggled with a variety of injuries since he arrived in Bloomington.  He played just 18 minutes in 11 games last season
