Sindarius Thornwell is ready to get back in action for South Carolina basketball and he took to Instagram as the Gamecocks enter SEC play on Wednesday night against Georgia.
“Last go around of conference play together,” Thornwell posted, adding the hashtag “secure the bag.”
Wednesday night marks Thornwell’s first game back from suspension. The senior guard missed six games, during which South Carolina went 3-3 with losses to Clemson, Seton Hall and Memphis.
“I would like to send an apology to our fans, Dr. (Harris) Pastides, coach (Ray) Tanner and most importantly my coaches and my teammates,” Thornwell said. “I am humbled and excited to be back on the court battling with my brothers and excited about conference play.”
Thornwell is averaging 18.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game this season. The Gamecocks were 7-0 with Thornwell on the floor before his suspension for an undisclosed violation of athletic department rules.
