University of Kentucky women’s basketball senior Ivana Jakubcova has decided to transfer elsewhere for her final year of eligibility, Coach Matthew Mitchell announced Tuesday in a statement.

Mitchell has granted Jakubcova her full release.

“Ivana has made the decision that it’s best for her to leave our program and finish her collegiate career elsewhere,” Mitchell said. “We support her in this decision and wish her well on and off the court.”

Jakubcova, who spent the last two seasons in Lexington after transferring from Murray State Junior College in Oklahoma, is set to graduate this spring with a degree in psychology and will be a graduate transfer elsewhere.

The native of Bratislava, Slovakia, played in 24 games this season with one start, averaging 1.1 points with 1.1 rebounds per game.

The 6-foot-6 post player finished fifth on the team with 10 blocks.
