Pack To Return for Final Season at Miami

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami fourth-year junior guard Nijel Pack announced Thursday that he will return to Miami for his final year of eligibility.

Pack, who started all 25 games played for the Hurricanes in 2023-24, averaged 13.3 points, 3.6 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 32.5 minutes per game. He ranked first on the team in assists per game and assist-to-turnover ratio (2.0).

“We are very excited to have Nijel back in a Miami uniform,” head coach Jim Larrañaga said. “He is one of the top guards in the country and has been an instrumental part of our program over the last two seasons. We are looking forward to having his leadership and experience on the team for another year and know he will help bring the program to new heights.”

In 2023-24, Pack scored in double-figures on 18 occasions and eclipsed the 1,500-point mark in his career on Jan. 20 when he totaled 19 points against Syracuse. The guard dished five-plus assists eight times and tied his career high in assists with nine against NJIT in the season opener.

In his first season at Miami, the Indianapolis, Ind., native was an instrumental part of the Hurricanes’ Final Four run in 2022-23. Pack was named the NCAA Tournament Midwest Region Most Outstanding Player after scoring 18.5 points per game on 51 percent shooting, 44.8 percent from 3-point range, in the first four games of the tournament.
