PITTSBURGH -- Former Penn State basketball player Rasir Bolton transferred to Iowa State. We hear about transfers often, but it’s the reason for the transfer that had head coach Patrick Chambers release a statement today.

Bolton said that Chambers told him he wanted to “loosen the noose that’s around his neck”
