USC ready to return to the court Wednesday night (AUDIO)

Bruce Ellington will be with the Gamecock basketball team Wednesday night

The USC basketball team has had nearly a two week break for exams.  The Gamecocks will return to the floor Wednesday afternoon at 5:00 PM against Appalachian State at the Colonial Life Arena as part of a doubleheader with the USC women.  The 21st ranked USC women take on top ranked Stanford a half our after the men’s game.

USC defeated Jacksonville it’s last time out on December 7th 91-74.  The Gamecocks are 6-3.  Appalachian is 2-7 and is coming off an 81-71 win over Missouri-Kansas City Sunday.  That victory snapped a seven game losing streak.

The Gamecocks will have Bruce Ellington available for tomorrow night’s game.  Ellington is the leading receiver on the Gamecock football team and the Gamecocks will have a bowl practice Wednesday morning.
