Wow...MHH is a big loss. Very talented player. If she is a grad transfer she'd be a great fit for UCONN next year with her length and perimeter shooting.

I heard rumors there was quite a bit of turbulence between Harrigan and Staley for most the season this year. Still shocked to see her go, she is a big loss.

Jackson is still quality depth and showed flashes at times.

Williams and Jackson wasn't a really big surprise to me Kiki was though.
Agree on first two.

Herbert-Harrigan is a surprise but not shocking when you consider her career and the late season discipline

a loss to team but very inconsistent. Curious to see if we see grad transfer now.

Question to SC Fans: How is Amihere doing? I know she tore her ACL again has she had surgery, what does the timetable for her look like ?

yes she's had some good moments at South Carolina....not sure she is a grad transfer but certainly would help up front next year if that's the case...

Yes she had her surgery on her ACL back in February. As of the first weekend of the NCAA tourney, she was off her crutches, wearing a knee immobilizer. Expectations are she will rehab at SC and should be ready to play next season.

KHH not a grad transfer. Will have to sit out a year.

I must have missed the late season discipline story. I always enjoyed watching her play (admittedly a bit less when she was playing well vs us, but even then I always liked her).

She and Cuevas-Moore were suspended for undisclosed reason.

Herbert Harrigan returns to lead Gamecocks to Sweet 16

I thought she had a really good year shooting the ball and blocking shots. I had her pencilled in as a starter who could stretch the floor, but I've never really trusted her.

I liked what I saw from Saxton on the boards, but she's a much more limited offensive player thus far. She won't be extending too far from the basketball, which suggests USC might get a little congested in the paint again.

I thought Bianca Jackson had a good year as a freshman and was headed towards being a much better version of role players that have limited us in the past.

I'd probably have pencilled her in as a starter, but that definitely in jeopardy with the freshmen. I didn't think she made any progress this past season. She was hurt by all the depth, I think, and never got a set role. Join the club.

Williams couldn't get off the bench. I actually thought she had one good game and I was confused at how little she played against teams with size. I suspect coach knows best and I saw an outlier, but would have liked to see what she could do a bit more. But not a big loss to the team.

.....

I think the best version of Herbert-Harrigan could have been all conference and a really good stretch four who could protect the rim beside Boston. I do think the ceiling of the team has been diminished a bit pending transfer season.

I wouldn't read too much into the suspension. In the piece, Staley said it was minimal, and it was for less than a game. This sounds to me like something like being late for practice, or the suspension that held Carter and Khaalia Hillsman out of the starting lineup vs Miss State last year when they thought they could make a fast food run as an alternative to the provided lunch but ended up being late for a bus.

I'd be cautious in general about interpreting transfer decisions. How events from last year at A&M have been portrayed adds to that, but I like to think I would be cautious in this area in any case.

This would be a big deal if true. Is there a link to a news story somewhere?
I don’t recall seeing confirmation that it was a second acl tear. There was discussion here a couple of months ago about Amihere sitting on the SC bench (she enrolled in January) with crutches and a brace on her right leg. She had previously had acl surgery on her left knee.

Unless she goes to Notre Dame.

PS. Yeah, I'm still POed about that shady deal.

People love to pile on players when they transfer, but maybe in some cases its on the coach?

Looks like the Freshmen can get plenty of playing time.

Goodness South Carolina has a lot of transfers. What is it now 10 or 11 in the last 3 or 4 season and that's not including Cuevas-Moore who Staley had to convince to stay. How long until Boston has buyer's remorse?

South Carolina has had a very high turnover rate under Dawn. By year two or three, I bet you half that incoming freshman class is gone.
