Sindarius Thornwell had one of the best single seasons in South Carolina basketball history.
Now, his name will be attached to a basketball scholarship, which will be given annually to a men’s basketball student-athlete, according to a university spokesperson.
The scholarship still is in its fundraising state, per The Garnet Society — the fundraising arm of the South Carolina athletic department.
Thornwell became the first SEC player of the year in program history in 2016-17. The Lancaster, S.C., native scored 21.4 points and grabbed 7.4 rebounds per game as a senior, helping lead the Gamecocks to the first Final Four in school history.
