Duane Notice helped South Carolina make program history this season, as the Gamecocks made a remarkable run to the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever. On Saturday, Notice published a farewell letter to his school, teammates and coach Frank Martin on positionless.com, capping off a memorable season for the Gamecocks’ senior.
Notice started all 37 games for South Carolina this season, averaging 10.2 points per game, which tied for third best on the team. He averaged the second most minutes on the team (33), while also tallying the second most assists (87).
“I’ve spent four years as a Gamecock and I wouldn’t change it for anything,” Notice said in his letter. “I’m so proud of being apart of this incredible program and team. We made history this year by going to the Final Four and helping reshape the identity of South Carolina basketball.”
Notice’s success with the Gamecocks didn’t begin with his senior season, as he won the SEC Sixth Man of the Year award as a junior during the 2015-16 campaign.
Notice thanked Martin in the letter for giving him a chance to play at the school during a time “when many did not.”
