The South Carolina Gamecocks men’s basketball team takes the floor in less than one month, and today Darrin Horn spoke at Media Day about the upcoming season.
The Gamecocks are coming off a rocky season in which they finished 14-16 overall, 5-11 in conference play, and last in the SEC East.
South Carolina will be a young team, with only one senior and one junior on the roster this season. The Gamecocks return Bruce Ellington, last year’s leading scorer, but it is unclear when Ellington will leave the football team and return to the hardwood.
The Gamcocks will look to make their first trip to the NCAA Tournament since the 2003-2004 season.
South Carolina officially starts its season on November 11th versus Western Carolina.
