Virginia Men's Basketball Coach Dave Leitao has announced that Center Tunji Soroye's medical hardship waiver was approved and he will return for the 2008-2009 season.
The Nigeria native played in only two games for the Cavaliers last season because of injury, but he now will have one more year of college eligibility.
Soroye has played in 81 games at UVa, starting 36. He led the team in blocks with 37 in 2005-2006. He has 128 points, 226 rebounds and 78 blocked shots in his career.
