IOWA CITY — In a University of Iowa release Friday, Hawkeyes women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder said that freshman Jinaya Houston will be taking time away from basketball to deal with “personal and health issues.”

“We feel it is best for Jinaya to spend some time away from the court in order to focus on some personal and health-related issues,” Bluder said. “She will remain at Iowa for the time being. Jinaya’s health and well-being is our primary concern.”

Houston is a 6-foot-1 guard from Davenport North.
