Two reserves leaving South Carolina men's basketball team


Two reserve forwards, sophomore Khadim Gueye and freshman Ibrahim Famouke Doumbia, are leaving South Carolina's men's basketball program.

Gamecocks Frank Martin said in a statement Wednesday that the 7-foot Gueye and the 6-6 Famouke Doumbia asked for and were granted their full releases.

Gueye, from Senegal, saw his playing time decrease from 7 minutes a game in 28 games as a freshman to 5 minutes per game in 17 contests this season.

Famouke Doumbia, who is from Mali, played in 12 games this season and averaged fewer than 4 minutes a contest.

Martin thanked both players for their contributions and wished them well in the future.
