COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Injured South Carolina guard Kory Holden has left the team.
Gamecocks coach Frank Martin announced Holden's decision on Saturday, a short time before South Carolina took on No. 10 Auburn at home.
Holden is a 6-foot-1 fourth-year junior who had sat out last season for the Gamecocks after transferring from Delaware. He was expected to be a big part of South Carolina's backcourt this season with the departures of guards Sindarius Thornwell, Duane Notice, P.J. Dozier and Justin McKie from last year's Final Four team.
