Bishop Daniels leaves Hurricanes basketball team

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The redshirt freshman had taken a leave of absence starting at the end of November.

After taking a leave of absence from the Miami Hurricanes men's basketball team on Nov. 28, redshirt freshman guard Bishop Daniels has left the team entirely.

Daniels had played in just three games this season as he dealt with a hamstring injury in the early going. Head coach Jim Larranaga said Daniels had taken the leave to work on his academics and had been practicing with the team for a couple days before he departed for good.

Guard Shane Larkin told the South Florida Sun Sentinel he thought Daniels was doing better but had a number of issues to deal with.

"I know he was going through a lot of things with school, family, basketball, a lot of things," Larkin told the Sun Sentinel. "He's doing a lot better. We have a class together and we just took our exam and he seemed like he was back to his old ways — just being a joker saying jokes and clowning around."

Daniels averaged just short of 17 minutes per game but hadn't played since Miami's win over the Jacksonville Dolphins on Nov. 16.
