Miami Walk-On Sorenson Leaves MBB Team

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami sophomore walk-on guard Steve Sorenson has left the basketball team to focus on academics, head coach Jim Larrañaga announced Tuesday morning.

“We want to thank Steve for his contributions to the Miami basketball program,” Larrañaga said. “He has contributed greatly as an excellent practice player, but at this time he has decided to make academics not only his top priority, but his only priority. We wish Steve luck and know he will always feel a part of our program.”

In his two seasons with the Canes, Sorenson played in 10 games.

Miami next hosts Notre Dame on Wednesday at 9 p.m. at the BankUnited Center.
