Aune leaves
Gophers men’s basketball center John Aune says he’s decided to leave the basketball program to pay more attention to his mechanical engineering major.
Aune, a 6-foot-10 sophomore walk-on, averaged just over four minutes per game this season. He played behind Joel Przybilla, then Ryan Wildenborg and Kyle Sanden.
