COLUMBIA, S.C. – University of South Carolina redshirt-senior forward Malik Cooke took part in December graduation ceremonies on Monday at Colonial Life Arena, earning his degree in sociology. Cooke, a native of Charlotte, N.C., leads the Gamecocks with 12.0 points per game thus far in the 2011-12 season. Cooke joins a list of student-athletes with academic success under head coach Darrin Horn, as every player who has completed his eligibility under Horn, both at South Carolina and Western Kentucky, has earned his degree.

Cooke, who transferred to South Carolina after two seasons at Nevada, has tallied just under 800 points for his career, which spans 105 games, including 60 starts. During his time in the Garnet and Black, Cooke has led the team in scoring nine times, in rebounding 11 times and in steals 18 times.
