April 18 (UPI) — Haley Cavinder, who led Miami in scoring in 2022-23, will join her twin sister Hanna in a return to the Hurricanes next season, she announced Thursday. The Cavinder twins are away in 2023.

They announced last April that they would forgo their fifth year of eligibility to pursue other opportunities.

Haley initially announced in November that she was committing to TCU. Hanna announced Wednesday that she will play for the Hurricanes next season.

“Given the news yesterday that my sister was returning to play ball in Miami and after much consideration, I have decided to return to the University of Miami and play with Hanna for our senior and fifth year,” wrote Haley Cavinder on Instagram. and

“There is nothing more important than family and the bond I share with my twin sister. Having the opportunity to play together once again is something I cannot pass up.

“I’m excited for this upcoming season and can’t wait to play at the U.”

Haley averaged 12.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 35 starts two seasons ago for the Hurricanes, who reached the Elite Eight before losing to LSU. These Tigers then defeated Caitlin Clark’s Iowa Hawkeyes in the 2023 title game.

The Cavinders are two of the most valuable collegiate athletes of the name, image and likeness era, according to on3.com. Their NIL support portfolio includes WWE, Raising Cane’s, and Intuit TurboTax, among others.

Haley Cavinder has started 35 games for the Hurricanes during the 2022-23 campaign. Hanna Cavinder, who averaged 3.8 points per game in 2022-23, appeared in 34 games but did not start.

The Twins played this season under former Hurricanes coach Katie Meier, who announced last month she would retire after 19 seasons. They spent their first three collegiate seasons at Fresno State.

Haley’s announcement to return to the Hurricanes and decommit from TCU came less than 2 hours after multiple media outlets reported that former LSU guard Hailey Van Lith had decided to transfer to TCU.
