"I would like to thank Cyclone Nation for all of the support the last four years," Buckley said. "I have decided to start a new chapter of my life beyond basketball. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to play for the Cyclones and in front of the best fan base in the nation. I also want to give a huge thanks to my teammates, who are now lifelong friends, for contributing to my success on and off the court. I am also thankful to the Iowa State coaches for the opportunity to play Division I basketball."
