Senior guard Abdoulaye Harouna rejoins basketball team

Senior guard Abdoulaye Harouna has reenrolled at Miami and rejoined the men's basketball team.

Harouna was on the roster to start the season, but took a two-month hiatus from the team and university. The reason for his sabbatical is unknown.

Originally a transfer from Southern Idaho, the 6'5", 178-pounder had been a mainstay in the RedHawks' lineup for the past two seasons, starting a combined 46 games over that period. He averaged 6.7 points per game and 2.4 rebounds per game during the 2016-2017 season.

His last game played was Miami's first round loss to Western Michigan in last year's Mid-American Conference tournament. Harouna started for the RedHawks and scored a team-high 15 points.

Harouna is expected to play off the bench.
