COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina senior forward Dominique Archie, who suffered a right knee sprain in South Carolina’s November 22 contest against Miami, will undergo season-ending knee surgery, Gamecock head coach Darrin Horn announced on Monday.

“After re-evaluation with the doctors, it has been determined that Dominique will be required to undergo season-ending knee surgery. Despite the encouraging response from his rehab, it was determined that he will not be able to reach full strength without surgery. Our number one priority throughout this process has been Dominique and his best interests, for his future as an individual and a basketball player. We will continue to support and encourage him in any way we can.”

Archie averaged 14.4 points and 6.0 rebounds in five games played this season. He surpassed the 1,000 point milestone in Carolina’s victory over South Florida on Nov. 20.
